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, and in October 2017 we joined forces with popular local restaurant A Canteen, who have opened their second location in our bookshop. A Canteen at Foyles serves a wide range of brunch and lunch dishes, along with cake and artisan coffee. Come in and try the new menu!

The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made - Greg Sestero & Tom Bissell.
In 2003, a film called “The Room” was released at a budget of $6,000,000 and closed after two weeks. This is the story of the making of that film written by the co-star. The film is regarded as the worst in history. This is compulsory reading about one man's disregard for logical film-making.
