Foyles launches new flagship bookshop

Foyles have recently launched a brand new flagship store on Charing Cross Road in London. The new store houses a range of over 200,000 titles on four miles of shelves – the equivalent of lining one bank of the Thames with books from Battersea Power Station to the Tower of London.

With 37,000 square feet of retail space, spread across eight alternating foot-plates over four floors, it is the largest bookshop to have opened in the UK so far this century. Alongside books, the store also stocks a wide range of gifts and stationery, magazines, printed music, classical music CDs and Classic and World DVDs. An impressive full height central atrium and large windows fill the space with natural light and dedicated events spaces will be brought to life by an all-star line-up of authors and activities for all ages, including book signings, jazz and classical concerts, lunchtime talks, topical debates, film screenings and creative workshops.
