Waterstone’s Bolton

Sarah-Clare Conlon, Literature Editor

Waterstone’s Bolton, 34-36 Deansgate, Bolton, BL1 1BL – Visit Now

We are Bolton’s leading bookshop, with our welcoming booksellers providing our customers with everything from popular Fiction to Local Interest titles.

Our grand building sits in the centre of town, providing a refuge for all lovers of books. The building itself has evolved through many incarnations: from a beautiful cinema, through several varied retail enterprises to the bookshop we are proud to present today. The first thing you see as you enter is our wide selection of locally based titles, honouring the rich and varied past of Bolton and its surrounds.

 With two expansive floors and an inviting Children’s section, visitors will often linger over a coffee and a carefully selected title from our wide range of Fiction and Non-Fiction; or pick up a story for someone else, along with our beautiful array of gifts and stationery.

Our booksellers, with their years of experience and knowledge, are happy to help you find the book you need and are passionate in their recommendations when guiding you to a new discovery.

We also love helping students to further their education and offer an Account Sales service to businesses and schools. Whatever book you’re after, let us help you find it, and then let us show you another that you’ll love.
