    Definitely go to the 5th floor for a cup and a bite! Every floor has different sections of books, just lovely! Also, watch out for "half price" or "buy one get one half price" promotions, you'll save.

    The best coffee in London might actually be at the café downstairs in Waterstones Piccadilly. The flat white delivers a walloping punch of flavour.
