Local Bookshops

Blackwell's Bookshop

141 Percy St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 7RS, UK – 0191 232 6421

Looking for dictionary but unfortunately it is not complete. There is a cafe that we can use while reading a book. Convenience but not complete stock

Very friendly staff and a good selection of textbooks as well as fiction and non fiction. They also do second hand and buy your old books; very handy for those textbooks you don't use anymore.


Emerson Chambers, Blackett St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 7JF, UK – 0191 261 7757

I’ve been coming to the Newcastle version of Waterstones in some shape or fashion for over twenty years and each redesign still confuses me! Always find my way eventually! Hosts the best selection of books in town and is now the destination of local author signings.

I love Waterstones, and it is always nice to browse in - not withstanding the fact that Amazon, etc, are always cheaper - I think bookshops need to be supported. The staff in this store are always really helpful and chatty. However, whenever I queue up to pay it is a nightmare to find anyone on the tills - except downstairs where the queue is nearly always long (i.e., 5 minutes or greater). There have been plenty of times I have gone to pay and been unable to find a member of staff. I am not sure why this is? The cafe is also very expensive and the quality not great. With prices actually higher than the high street coffee shops you would expect the coffee and sandwiches to be of fantastic quality. This is not the case. The staff were not using temperature gauges to make the coffee and as a result the coffee was pretty awful. For the price this is not what you would expect.

Oxfam Books & Music
