We brought our daughter here for GSCE books and it did not disappoint for that. It’s roughly half the size that I recall although very modern feeling to it now. Lovely cafe as well. Could spend hours here given the time. Great range of books.

Had a wonderful evening at Foyles at the Derren Brown book signing. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The only slight let down is that it was very cramped. But all in all a great night.

Be prepared to spend time in here...and money. Knowledgeable and helpful staff and good range of publications. Great cafe on 5th floor where you can relax with a book (naturally).
