For me Foyles is the original and best giant bookshop in the UK. I remember trips to London when I was a kid where my mum would disappear to Oxford St and dad and I would nip around the corner to Foyles and spend hours browsing the shelves. I honestly think these trips to Foyles were instrumental in widening my outlook on the world.
I'm pleased to to say that I was back there recently and things haven't changed much. OK, it seems a little bit smaller to the adult me, but the shop itself is still a buzzing hub of knowledge, learning and fun. I now take my kids there in much the same way I was taken there. OK, it probably has less impact on them (now the giant bookshop in the sky is out there) but I hope it still retains some of that magic I grew up with for them.
