Waterstones Colchester - High Street

12-13 High St, Colchester CO1 1DA, UK – 01206 561307

Great Store with good service! Regular evenings to meet Authors, massive book selection and some games, knowledgeable staff, two entrances, in town centre!

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.


19 Culver Walk, Lion Walk Shopping Centre, Colchester CO1 1LX, UK – 01206 572688

This WHSmith is of a good size and is always in stock of things you expect WHSmith to have. They often change round the store, so sometimes I find it difficult to find what I need. But, they always have good offers on!

The staff are so helpful, friendly and professional.
