Local Bookshops


77 High St, Staines TW18 4PQ, UK – 01784 490404

Tidy, small and friendly branch of the chain. Easy enough to find what I wanted though the only stock a fairly small selection of stationary. Lots of sale items clearly marked and has a large selection of new releases prominently displayed.

Great selection and layout, really friendly staff, quite and a great shop to browse through. Has a big kids books section as well. Has sci-fi, fantasy, travel, history, science, fiction (adult and YA), and crime. Not a very big arts books selection, but otherwise really great.

Canaan Christian Book Centre / Counselling Service

121 High St, Staines TW18 4PD, UK – 01784 457194

Friendly, helpful and a good resource. I have just ordered books from there that I could have ordered online but with their competitive prices and good customer service I didn't want or need to go elsewhere.

All of my visits have been greeted with exceptional kindness from very thoughtful staff


Compass Centre Nelson Rd, Longford, Hounslow TW6 1QG, UK

This is fine, more of less as you'd expect at the airport. A good selection of books to see you through the longest flight or day on the beach. This is a small branch but is good enough.

Good Size, Friendly Staff
