Explore England's literary history at Foyles Bookshop for things to do in London

Published: Thursday 13th of September 2012

England is known for its fantastic literary history having produced authors from Shakespeare to JK Rowling and the Bronte Sisters to Nick Hornby, and people looking for things to do in London to explore this culture should consider a trip to Foyles Bookshop.

No ordinary bookshop, Foyles is world-famous and features some seven miles worth of books, mainly surrounding 56 specialist subjects, including art and textbooks.

Unlike many other London bookshops, Foyles is still privately run and has remained in the same site since it began in 1903.

Visitors to the attraction will not just browse books during their visit - they can also peruse the art gallery on the fifth floor and pay a visit to Ray's Jazz Cafe to relax with their new purchase.

Kids at the will no doubt be entertained by the piranha tank in the children's department, allowing adults to browse the shelves in peace.

Get free entry to over 55 top London attractions with a London Pass.
