About This Bookstore

 

Waterloo now openAt nearly 3000 square feet, our second shop in a London railway terminus offers a range of around 15,000 titles, alongside an eclectic range of gifts, stationery and Foyles-branded souvenirs. The shop itself retains elements of the original station design, including two beautifully restored cupola-style ticket booths.

On the ground floor, time-pressed commuters can find new titles and bestsellers, with a focus on Fiction, Children's and Travel, as well as sections covering Art, Biography, Business, Cookery, History, Science, Sport and more. Meanwhile, the mezzanine level is home to our full range of Fiction, as well as Crime and Science Fiction, offering a bubble of tranquillity amidst the hurly-burly of the UK's busiest railway station.

Our expert booksellers are, as always, on hand to help you find exactly what you're looking for, whether it's a quick read for your commute, a special gift or just help choosing from our broad range.

We look forward to welcoming you through the doors of the newest branch of the 2013 National Bookseller of the Year.
