Horrifically Overpriced franchise operation, a small packet of anything is very expensive, Magazines perhaps arent marked up terribly ? but all the other sundries really are. This outlet seems a great deal more expensive than most other whsmiths ive been too, if you want to waste money on overpriced items before you catch a train waste your money into these greedmongers pockets here, No doubt in turn they’re ripped off By extortionate station rent or something but really this all comes down to passengers being mugged for a drink or a sandwich, its fundamentally an unpleasant little venture. I refuse to spend money here or spend the absolute minimum when desperate.
I wasn't expecting to review a WHSmith. They're all the same, right? Books, magazines, overpriced bottles of coke. Yawn.
But this one was a bit of a shock. I only came in because I was early to meet for a friend and it started raining. It's HUGE! Full of books! More magazines than I've ever seen (remember the magazine section in Borders on Tottenham Court Road? This is better.) There's so much stuff in here. You can spend hours browsing (and judging by the rows of women reading Vogue whilst waiting for a train, people do). This place is great, and I never thought I'd say that about anywhere in Victoria.
I'm impressed. This obviously isn't the kind of place I'd make a special visit to, but if you've got 20 minutes to kill before a train, pop in here and do some browsing. Just check the queue before you buy something - it gets busy here and I'm not sure the latest Pullman is the best reason for missing your train.
This WhSmith is deceptively larger than it looks from the outside sells more than any railway station shop than i have seen before which is good. If i’m in a rush it’s a great shop to pick up a paper and a bottle of water or what have you before going to get the train from Victoria Station which is right next door.
Great shop to grab a paper of stop to read some of the magazines if you’ve got a spare 10 minutes!
Ah W H Smiths. The best place to waste a 20 minute wait in Victoria Station while waiting for a train. Its my place of chocie to catch up on the latest Doctor Who magazine - unless of course its come with a free gift and is wrapped in plastic.
This W H Smiths is more like a town centre store than a station booth, as it has two floors and sells books, stationery, games etc.
For a WH Smith that is in a station, this is actually a pretty good one. It has a large book section which has popular fiction, non fiction and a good selection of classics, audio books and interesting reads. If you have a long journey I think you’ll definately find something of interest! There is also an exhaustive magazine collection which really covers every imaginable title going (Including some only seen before on Have I got news for you…)
There is also a fairly good stationary bit upstairs, although I have had trouble finding things I actually needed there, but if you need wrapping paper or a card, then you’ll be fine!
A larger than average station branch of W H Smiths, located right in the heart of the station, and set over two floors.
The ground floor has a huge (and unsurprisingly busy) magazine and newspaper section, as well as a smaller book section, selling fiction, travel and business books. It's usually packed with commuters browsing the magazines while waiting for their train.
There's also a food cabinet selling a limited range of drinks and pre-packed sandwiches. Upstairs is the cards and stationery section, with a large choice of greeting cards.
