Visit Foyles Bookshop for new titles and bestsellers on a wide range of subjects
Foyles Bookshop at Royal Festival Hall sits right on the riverside, and its range of more than 15,000 book titles, alongside gifts, cards and stationery, makes it the perfect destination to complement your visit to Southbank Centre.
About our bookshop
The bookshop stocks all the latest new titles and bestsellers on a wide range of subjects from fiction and poetry to science, travel, art and children’s books. Foyles’ expert booksellers can help you find the right book, whether you’re looking for something for yourself or for that perfect gift.
In the summer you can relax outside the bookshop on colourful deckchairs, reading or just watching the world go by.
Foyles also runs a bookstall at all Southbank Centre literary events and sells music at many of the classical and contemporary concerts at Southbank Centre.
Foyles’ own events programme has seen authors including Patti Smith, Michael Palin, Terry Pratchett and Ngugi wa Thiong’o welcomed for intimate signings and performances.
