  • I visited Foyles specifically to see the flagship location which I had read such good things about. I was immediately impressed by the selection even though I did not have unlimited time to browse. The purchasing experience was good but I felt that something wasn't quite right. Long story short, I reached out to Foyles and the response I got from them was absolutely stupendous. I have never before had such a purely positive, heartwarming interaction with a company after a small issue. They were so lovely that I can't help but say amazing things.
  • The new Foyles premises are a delight to walk around. Glass lifts enable you to get a good view of the whole shop. Highly knowledgeable and approachable staff who'll go out of their way to help you find what you're looking for. Could have spent hours in here. Head here if you need to escape the crowds: a tranquil haven in the middle of frenetic central London.
  • Well spaced out book shop with plenty of room to sit, relax and read. Small selection of books on certain subjects, but usually the best books on the subject. Good clean facilities and a relaxing cafe. Three lifts for easy access to all floors and enough room for a larger person on crutches, like myself, to navigate easily.
  • Expansive book store with a large cookery section. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Sells new books, but a few sections have a small selection of used and collectible books.
  • One of my fav places in London. Quiet for a quick read and excellent cafe on the top floor. It's been renovated quite recently, it's takes you another world.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
