With four miles of shelving, you can bet on finding even the most obscure of titles in London’s most legendary bookshop. Once synonymous with chaos, Foyles long ago got its act together and in 2014 moved just down the road into the spacious former home of Central St Martins. Thoroughly redesigned, its stunning new home is a joy to explore.

The cafe is on the 5th floor, where you can also find the Gallery at Foyles (for art exhibitions); Grant & Cutler, the UK’s largest foreign-language bookseller, is on the 4th floor while Ray’s Jazz is on the 2nd floor.
