Foyles Charing Cross Road
One of London's best-loved shops, the Foyles on Charing Cross Road is home to almost everything you could want to read. Eclipsing even the flashy Waterstones on Piccadilly, its combination of atmosphere, excellent service and unparalleled depth in book choice make it a one-stop shop for everything literary. It offers a comprehensive selection spanning the usual bestsellers, fiction, photography, travel and childrens sections and adds massive self-help, psychology, educational and reference selections. The cooking section is particularly excellent.
The store also includes an adjacent café that, unlike the impersonality of a Starbucks or chain coffee shop at equivalent competitors, is completely independent and has racks and racks of jazz records for sale. In addition to this, it also holds intimate show and readings by authors.
