About This Bookstore

Waterloo now open

At nearly 3000 square feet, our shop in London Waterloo station 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, Graphic Novels, Sport and more. Meanwhile, the mezzanine level is home to our full range of Fiction, as well as Crime, Science Fiction, Natural History and Science, 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 our doors.

Staff picks from Waterloo Station




Just KidsJust Kids - Patti Smith

A touching memoir of Patti Smith's life and friendship with the artist Robert Mapplethorpe, as well as an unforgettable portrait of 1960s New York.  Laura

Remember those heavyweight critical studies of Modernism that you struggled through as a student? Well, this book isn't like that. Instead, it is a richly entertaining tapestry of historical and biographical vignettes and excerpts from diaries and letters, buttressed by typically erudite footnotes from polymath Kevin Jackson. Jeremy














Guapa - Saleem Haddad

Guapa is both a universal story of the perils of adulthood and a deeply personal examination of culture and identity. Haddad is fuelled equally by rage and compassion as he explores the social, sexual and economic chasms that divide his characters from each other and themselves.  Chris















Fiesta: The Sun Also Rises

Fiesta: The Sun Also Rises - Ernest Hemingway 

A fascinating exploration of courage, cowardice and, (it is Hemingway after all!) masculine authenticity, all set amongst the backdrop of 1920's Spain. Hemingway's first and best novel.  Dan

7th February 2015 - 12 Midnight Kat Hacheney

15th April 2014 - 12 Midnight Joshua Piercey

While Westerns remain popular in America, they have largely fallen out of favour with British readers. This is a great pity, suggests Joshua from our Waterloo branch, as they are missing out on some wonderful fiction, both classic and contemporary.

15th February 2014 - 12 Midnight Joshua Piercey

Joshua, from our new shop at Waterloo, recalls the labour-intensive process of getting the shop ready for its first day and explains why the shop means as much to him as it does to the many travellers who've already discovered this new oasis of calm in Britain's busiest station.
