About This Bookstore

We’re moving!


You heard us! After five years selling books to the good people of Bristol (and loving every minute of it) we thought it was time to up our game. When we say that we don’t just mean a lick of paint here and there and a few flicks of the duster, we mean a whole, sparkly, shiny new shop.



Not far – we have a lovely space in the heart of Cabot Circus, a few hundred yards away. In fact if you poke your head out of the door and look to your right you can almost see it.



We’ll be opening mid-December; the current shop will remain open right up until the point where we are ready to move the books over, so you’ll only be without a Foyles for a couple of days at worst. In the meantime things might not always look as fresh as they should while we prepare to move our 20,000 books, so please excuse our appearance and ask a member of staff if you need help.

Will I still be able to get a coffee?

You bet. We’re putting a lot of effort into making the Café at Foyles even better than it is now. It’ll also be integrated fully into the bookshop, forming a seamless blend of caffeine and literature (otherwise known as heaven).


Will you have as many books?

We’ll be honest: we’re moving to a cosier shop, and that means we’re having to do some work to trim back our shelves a little – which is always a healthy exercise for a bookshop to carry out, as it gives more focus on the books that our readers really want to read. Our range doesn’t end at the end of our bookcases though – we’re delighted that Bristol will be only the second shop in the chain to adopt our brand new instore digital ordering platform, via which customers will have easy access to over half a million titles (with UK home delivery thrown in).


How can I find out more?

Sign up for Foyalty or our newsletter, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for news of the opening date, as well as special offers and events to celebrate the relaunch.


Thanks for your custom over the last five years – we can’t wait to welcome you to our new home!
