Local Bookshops


West Village Shopping Centre, Dartford, Greenhithe DA9 9SE, UK – 01322 624831

What's not to love about this place. you've got numerous books of every kind you could think of, personal appearances from a range of authors, the children's section is one of the best I've seen (including anything Harry Potter!) that sometimes holds events too! The staff are helpful and friendly.

Really love Waterstones, really vibrant colours everywhere and lovely well priced gift ideas. Nice kids section which is out the was and easy access to a Starbucks at the back of the shop. Staff always pleasant as well.

Newsstand Comics and Candy

Suffolk Rd, Dartford DA1 1EJ, UK – 07969 124363

Small and compact. Great selection of up-to-date comics. Not much in terms of a back catalogue sadly but they do also sell unique drinks and other pop culture bits. Always great to visit.

Excellent staff and selection - not much else to say

The Works

Priory Shopping Centre, Dartford DA1 2HR, UK – 01322 586808

Great selection of local books on both Dartford and Kent, as well as the usual range of craft, art supplies and discounted books. Staff are helpful, but it is best to look online first and have your book delivered for in-store collection, to ensure the book you want.
