About WHSmith

Having graced the high streets of the nation for well over a century, WHSmith* needs little introduction. What began as an independent newsagent in 1792 grew into the company we all know and love, with WHSmith officially launching in 1828.

Today, it's best known for its wide variety of books, magazines, newspapers and stationery all found in convenient outlets, more than 600 of which are located in town centres with a further 800 travel hubs found in the likes of motorway service stations, airports and railway stations.

It's long been the go-to shop for anyone after something to read but, thanks to its ever-growing supply of goods - from food, snacks and drinks to greetings cards, art supplies and more besides - WHSmith is also an essential part of almost every traveller's journey, too.
