Local Bookshops


59-59, Cameron Walk, Metro Centre, Metrocentre, Gateshead NE11 9YR, UK – 0191 493 2266

Large WH Smith store with everything you would expect to find in this kind of store. Feels quite cluttered, but probably because they have so many items. There is a Costa Coffee store in the back section of the top floor, so good to grab a quiet drink, especially if you just purchased a book.

Very helpful staff.
