Waterstones

15 Union St, Torquay TQ1 1ES, UK – 01803 659750

New to Waterstones in Torquay. Staff always friendly and service good both in the cafe and book counter. Relaxing place to sit and read good selection of books and great also for children's selection of books and activities. Great coffee! 👍

This is a superb bookshop with great service and a lovely coffee shop to go with it, which makes for a very relaxing break!

The Works

73 Union St, Torquay TQ1 3DA, UK – 01803 214896

The books in here are an absolute bargain and the staff are very efficient. Can be a bit cramped at times, but the sheer number of books from all genres and topics easily makes up for it. If you are doing research, pop in here first as you may save a fortune.

Great shop, very difficult to get around with a buggy though

WHSmith

7-13 Union St, Torquay TQ1 1ES, UK – 01803 213046

Not a bad store, occasionally has some good discounts and they offer a student discount. Small selection of books and reasonable selection of magazines too. One handy feature is the post office upstairs (they also have a lift for disabled customers).

Good location but VERY pricey. Something like 90p for a choc bar
