WH Smith

WHSmith is one of the UK’s leading retailers and aims to be its most popular bookseller, stationer and newsagent.

We have over 500 high street stores, over 120 stores at airports, train stations and motorway service areas and whsmith.co.uk serves customers 24 hours a day.

The first newsagent in the Smith family name opened in 1792, and the company, WHSmith, was created in 1828. WHSmith.co.uk was launched in 1999.

With over 600 stores on the high street and over 600 stores at airports, train stations, hospitals and motorway services, WHSmith is one of the UK's leading retail groups and a household name.

Beyond the UK we continue to open stores in airports, railway stations, hospitals and shopping malls across Australia, South East Asia, India and the Middle East.

You probably know us best for books, newspapers and stationery. Now, thanks to our carefully chosen partners, we offer an increasingly wide choice of goods through our stores and website - from personalised children's books to personalised greeting cards and magazine subscriptions.

It's important our online service is as good as the service you get in-store, which is why we:

  • deliver free to WHSmith high street stores
  • deliver orders over £20 free to your address
  • send each product when it's in stock, instead of waiting for your whole order to be ready
  • make returns easy - just bring them into your nearest WHSmith high street store
