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.
