Fodor's Review

Founded in 1903 by the Foyle brothers after they failed the Civil Service exam, this family-owned bookstore is in a 1930s art deco building, once the home of the renowned art college Central Saint Martins. Foyles carries more than 200,000 titles on its 4 miles of bookshelves. One of London's best sources for textbooks and the United Kingdom's largest retailer of foreign language titles, Foyles also stocks everything from popular fiction to military history, sheet music, medical tomes, graphic novels, and handsome illustrated fine arts books. It also offers the store-within-a-store Ray's Jazz (one of London's better outlets for music) and a cool café. Foyles has branches in the Southbank Centre, Waterloo station, and the Westfield shopping center in Stratford.
