About This Bookstore
The newest bookshop to wear the iconic red Foyles sign over its door opened in Chelmsford in September 2016, not far from the ancestral home of the Foyle family. We're proud to have opened our first shop in Essex, where book lovers can enjoy all that's great about our century-old business in our bright, modern new home on Bond Street. We have some 15,000 books over two floors, with a cafe serving coffee and cakes to fuel your book-buying.

Staff picks from Foyles Bond Street Chelmsford.
The Secret History
By Donna Tartt
This is one of my all-time favourite books and I re-read it every autumn. It’s beautifully written, with a gripping story and fully tangible characters. You won't be able to stop reading, but you won't want it to end.
Wonder Woman (Rebirth): The Lies
By Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp
She's one of the greatest superheroes in history; Diana Prince, Wonder Woman, Daughter of Themyscira. But things aren't adding up. Her memories of her origin and life are conflicting and Diana believes she's being deceived. But by who? An excellent story that had me tied up in suspense waiting for the big reveal. This is a perfect starter for fans of the film to delve deeper into her world.
The House at the End of Hope Street
By Menna van Praag
Filled with magic, whimsy and feminine wisdom - this story is about an enchanted house that appears to women who have lost all hope. Guests are invited to stay 99 nights – rent and bill free – and in that time the house will give them what they need to change their lives. I wish I could stay a spell at 11 Hope Street.
