About This Bookstore
Nearest Underground Station: Waterloo. Orientation - follow signs to the Royal Festival Hall from whichever exit taken from Waterloo station.
Opened in June 2005 our Royal Festival Hall branch sits right on the riverside in the heart of the Southbank Centre. Open from 10am-10pm every day, it offers the perfect destination whether you’re attending a concert or event, or simply enjoying the delights of the area. We stock a broad range of subjects from fiction, literature and poetry to philosophy, biography, science, cookery, health, graphics, art, travel, London guides and children's titles. In the summer months you can while away the hours lounging in a deckchair on our lawn, reading your favourite book or just watching the world go by. We also run a bookstall at all the Southbank Centre’s Literary events and frequently have available signed copies by many of the authors appearing , as well as holding our own signings in-store, with recent authors ranging from Michael Palin to Terry Pratchett and Ngugi wa Thiong’o.

New Year, New You
As John Lennon sang, 'another year over, and a new one just begun.' With January the time to set in motion those habits and actions for the new year, our selection of New Year, New You books should help you achieve those plans. Whether you've run previously or not, it's never too late to begin as Guardian journalist Alexandra Hemminsley shows in her lively memoir, Running Like a Girl. If it's habits you need to refine, try Charlie Duhigg's Power of Habit, or Josh Kaufman's The First 20 Hours to help start as you mean to go on.
