back to stores

The first newsagent in the Smith family name opened in 1792, and the company, WHSmith, was created in 1828. The UK’s first secure online order was placed with WHSmith in 1995 and 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.
