Wow!, what a change to the old Foyles bookshop,it's an amazing modern bookshop comprising of 5 floors of books. Unlike my local bookshop I could go to the sections and just pick up the books I wanted. I will come again.

My partner and I went to an event here at the weekend - It was great. We had a quick look round and were amazed at the selection. Great little cafe on the 5th floor and I will definitely be back!
