Waterstones Books in Banbury

Situated within Castle Quay Shopping Centre, Waterstones Banbury offers books in a friendly, helpful atmosphere to book lovers of all ages.

Arranged on one floor, we are an accessible family bookshop stocking a wide range competitive prices. Friendly, experienced booksellers can help you pick the perfect read or you can just browse in our safe haven of books! Our fantastic Children’s section gives parents and children the opportunity to discover new books and old favourites in a fun, friendly environment. Moreover, our enduring relationships with local schools also see us active within the local community, helping to bring writers and readers closer together.

Waterstones – Your Local Bookshop

Waterstones began in 1982 under the aegis of its founder, Tim Waterstone. Over the decades that have followed, we have grown to become an icon of the British cultural landscape, employing over 3000 superb booksellers across over 280 bookshops.

As the last surviving national bookshop chain, under the helmsmanship of Managing Director James Daunt, we are proud to have fought off the perceived threat of e-readers and online competition to begin a programme of active expansion. Recent years have seen fresh shops open around the country and sites either move or be upgraded. With recent openings including Reigate, Clifton and moves to far more attractive locations for our shops in Edinburgh and Manchester’s Trafford Centre, our plans continue to be ambitious.

Perhaps unusually for a national retailer, our branch managers enjoy a high degree of individual autonomy, running their shops to best please their local customers, with only the lightest of central suggested direction. We take enormous pleasure in championing simply good (but sometimes relatively overlooked) books, a principle that began most famously with John Williams’ Stoner, a quiet, intense novel that we turned into a bestseller forty years after its original publication.

Working closely with our bookshops are our efforts online, where at Waterstones.com we are working to bring the very essence of Waterstones to every home and smartphone in Britain. With hugely popular endeavours such as our regular reading update Waterstones Weekly and an ever-increasing offering of exclusive reader offers and signed editions, Waterstones.com is the perfect online companion to our High Street bookshops. Click & Collect – the service that links the two – has grown in tandem with our success, allowing our customers to experience the best of both worlds.

Through our own coffee shops, range of books, our array of gifts and booksellers who genuinely love what they sell, we welcome you to Waterstones.
