Waterstones Glasgow Argyle Street prides itself on its friendly staff and local bookshop feel in the heart of the city. Recently refurbished with three floors of books, Stationery and Gifts, it is a wonderful place to browse or visit our fantastic Café.

Visitors and locals alike love our shop on the corner of Argyle Street and Union Street, just minutes away from Glasgow’s Central Station. We have three perfectly formed floors to browse, a healthy events programme and monthly Book Group open to all.

On the bright and airy Ground Floor you’ll find all our favourite bestsellers and new titles plus a wide range of Cards, Stationery and Gift Wrap. Our Scottish section can be found on the Ground Floor too, and it’s not just books. You’ll find beautiful Scottish gifts and cards from local artists and designers.

Take a trip up our central staircase to the First Floor to find all genres of Fiction, Children's, Cookery and Audiobooks and our Café. Our Café W serves local produce and Matthew Algie coffee to sit in or take away and we have seating scattered throughout the floors so you can sit down and enjoy your coffee whilst browsing our books. The café seating area includes windows overlooking Argyle Street which are perfect to watch the world go by. The floor is staffed by booksellers who love reading and recommending titles to our customers, and will always be able to chat enthusiastically to you about what they’ve read and loved.

The Second Floor houses our nonfiction sections with plenty of seating to relax and browse. We have a comprehensive selection of titles across all genres; History to Craft, Sciences to Art. We have booksellers with knowledge and interests in many different disciplines, so please ask if you can’t find what you’re looking for or need a recommendation.

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, our shop has undergone major investment and redevelopment over the last few years and we’re very proud of what we have to offer now. It’s no accident our shop was nominated for our company Shop of the Year award and one of our managers won Bookshop Manager of the Year at the industry awards last year.

We are always happy to support our local authors and readers however we can, whether that’s through our kids Story Time sessions, local book launches or book club meetings – if you think we can do something to make our shop even better for you, we want to know. There’s not many bookshops left now and we try to make sure we provide the best aspects of any bookshop; a perfect balance of size and breadth of range with a local, personable feel. We look forward to welcoming you here soon!
