Waterstones Colchester - High Street

Really good book shop. Well stocked and they will order in a book if it's not there already. Though recently an order has been rather slow to come, which is why I'm giving 4 stars.

Lovely store, great size and enough space to have a thorough look through the books before deciding what to purchase
