Probably the single most impressive independent bookshop in London, Foyles built its reputation on the sheer volume and breadth of its stock (with 56 specialist subjects in the flagship store) and, going against the tide of bookshop closures, now boasts six stores in central London. Its five hugely comprehensive storeys accommodate other shops too: there’s Ray’s Jazz café and a fine concession of Grant & Cutler, the largest foreign language bookshop in the UK.
Fiction at Foyles should be lauded along with an impressive range of teaching materials, computer software and the comprehensive medical department. Elsewhere, there’s an extensive music department, a large gay-interest section, an impressive range of foreign fiction, law and business, philosophy and sport. The shop hosts regular events featuring well-known faces like Helen Fielding, Anthony Horowitz and Jasper Fforde (visit the website for more details).
