Plymouth, New George Street – Saturday 3rd November 2018

The other Waterstones in Plymouth is in a red-brick neo-Georgian building. Called Leicester Harmsworth House after Sir Robert Leicester Harmsworth who acquired the Western Morning News in 1920, it used to house their offices and has a lovely feel about it.
