Owner description: Bookworms can happily spend a day poring over some 200,000 titles in this five-story shop. Of special note are regular author talks and the excellent foreign language and classical music departments.

I could not get over the range of subject matters that this book store caters for. As the other reviewers have said you can spend 5 minutes to a full day in this store exploring the numerous levels and books on display. With a cafe and seating to enjoy reading your purchases. Very large children/youth section which will keep your children entertained for hours.

You can spend as long in here as long as you have the time spare! Has to be one of the best bookshops ever and with a huge range of every subject available.

I can't imagine a topic that is not covered in this well laid out book store. There are huge sections of fiction in every language you can imagine. It also has wonderful history, linguistics and other specialty areas. The travel section is also quite impressive.

If you love bookstores this one is just the icing on the cake. London is full of great bookstores - all along Charing Cross Rd as well as just about every place else in London. Don't miss Foyles though.

Massive place 5 floors. Book junkie paradise.
the selection was great I'm always looking for books on a very trivial subject matter and I found section devoted to that subject. I was really impressed.

A must-see and must-visit for any book lover . The massive 5 floor building houses all sorts of books you can imagine under the sun - fiction, non-fiction , including all the esoteric subjects . The nearest tube station is Tottenham Court Road . The time flies once you enter - if you are into books . The booksellers are excellent and they can help you with any queries or searches . You can also join "Foyalty" and get discounts on your purchases in person or online . The cafe is also an excellent experience
