An average sized Waterstones bookshop merchandises a range of around 30, 000 individual books, with 200, 000 titles in the largest shop. With over one million books in print, and around 120, 000 new consumer titles published every year (compared with around 10, 000 in the 1950s), the expert recommendations and advice of the company's booksellers are key ingredients in its success. Waterstones' flagship shop on Piccadilly in London is the biggest bookshop in Europe.
With specialist floors concentrating on fiction, academic genres and children's books (among many other subjects) it is a great resource for booklovers everywhere. A great 5th floor bar helps to relax our customers in between heavy bouts of serious browsing.
Waterstones in Gower Street, London, is our flagship academic shop, and Europe's biggest academic book specialist.
