19 Culver Walk, Lion Walk Shopping Centre, Colchester CO1 1LX, UK – 01206 572688

This WHSmith is of a good size and is always in stock of things you expect WHSmith to have. They often change round the store, so sometimes I find it difficult to find what I need. But, they always have good offers on!

The staff are so helpful, friendly and professional.
