About Foyles

Our new flagship bookshop at Charing Cross Road opened on 7th June at no.107, just a few doors down from our old shop.To mark the move, we ran an all-star programme of events between 11th June and 5th July. In January 2014 we opened a new store in Waterloo Station. At nearly 3000 square feet, it offers a range of around 15,000 titles, alongside an eclectic range of gifts, stationery and Foyles-branded souvenirs. In May 2013, we were thrilled to be named UK Bookseller of the Year at the 2013 Bookseller Industry Awards for the second year running.

Time OutIn older news - our Bristol shop was selected in the Independent's Top 50 UK Bookshops. We are delighted to have been voted Time Out's number 1 London Bookshop. We appear at number 16 on the capital's overall best stores too!

Alongside our flagship shop on Charing Cross Road, we've been steadily expanding across London since we opened our first new branch in 2005 at the Royal Festival Hall, and we now have branches in Westfield London, Westfield Stratford City, Waterloo Station and Bristol.

Bristol was our first shop outside London for 70 years and opened in Bristol's Cabot Circus in March 2011.

Our flagship shop held the world record for the largest bookshop in the world and we still boast the largest range under one roof of any bookshop in the UK. Whichever store you visit, you can expect to find as wide a range of books as possible, carefully curated to the specific needs of each of our stores' customers, as well as knowledgeable booksellers who are happy to help.

We're proud to have been named UK Bookseller of the Year at the 2013 Bookseller Industry Awards for the second year running, as well as being shortlisted for Children's Bookseller of the Year and Highly Commended in the Marketing Campaign of the Year category. We won both UK Bookseller of the Year and UK Children's Bookseller of the Year at the 2012 Bookseller Industry Awards. We were named London Independent Bookseller of the Year at the 2007 Industry Awards and our expansion meant that in 2008 we were named Chain Bookselling Company of the Year as well as overall UK Bookseller of the Year. Foyles is still independently owned by the Foyle family.
