Amazing selection of books (4 floors of them and the top floor is a cafe). The books range from things you'd find anywhere to less well known things. Prices are reasonable, and even at times the same or cheaper than online. It's like a treasure trove to explore. If you're a fan of books and reading carve out a few hours to explore!

Foyles has been my happy place since I was a child. On this visit I discovered the range of foreign language books, children's picture books, and art and design reference books. I always find something excellent in Foyles.

An alternative place for music purchases. A wonderful selection of classical, theatre and movie CDs, DVDs and BluRay Disks! Very good offers on new releases for the first month or so. There is also coffee and other sources of relaxation available!

However, one big note of caution. When a disc is NOT in stock they quote a price, however the price is that when the disc was last in stock! With the fall in the value of the pound, this can make a considerable difference between the price quoted, and the amount to be paid when you collect the item.

I did, and was shock when the extra was approx a 20% extra on what I’d been quoted. The fact that staff were well aware of the likely discrepancy, it is surprising the such a “foremost” store apparently has not easily accessible way of quoting a current price rather than one that was only relevant years before.

This new Foyles is great. The only thing I shouldn't be telling you is... the Cafe on the 5th floor. It's great. Coffee is superb. Food good. Prices OK. Now it'll be a chore to get served. Oh well! Every floor is wheelchair accessible. Staff relaxed and professional.

Good coffe but very pricey, too few seats for a place usually so crowded and if they happen to open the upper floor, make sure they'll come after your first sip of your coffee to say that the floor is closed! What is more impolite than displacing a guest?

Doylestown is the newest incarnation of the old Foyles bookshop that has been a fixture on Charring Cross Road for a while.

Probably the largest bookshop in London, it boasts an extensive fiction section, a huge and comprehensive non-fiction section covering everything from physics to psychology, as well as a nice cafe on the top floor. It even has a small music section selling specialist music and some gallery space, along with a meeting/exhibition space that doubles as extra seating for the cafe.

The bookshop itself is built around a white airy staircase which winds its way upstairs in half-floor segments and lifts give step free access to all floors.

Great bookshop. Lots of choice and nice relaxed atmosphere. I can spend hours in here. The staff could learn a thing or two about customer service though.

Good service and really nice location in the centre, its quiet and quaint only problem is that some books are damaged or have had people mess with them.

Don't visit between 11.30am and 12pm as neither the lunch or breakfast menu are available. You are only left with cakes, several of which are mislabelled.
