What is still probably ‘Europe’s largest bookshop’ stocks more than 200,000 titles plus cards, stationery, printed music, classical music CDs and Classic and World DVDs. It also hosts Ray’s Jazz Music and Books, the Café and a Gallery and an events space. Totally refurbished in 2004, it has shed its old Soviet-style approach to customers and now has 80 helpful, informed and informative staff who really know their stuff.
Open 9.30 am to 9pm six days a week and 11.30am to 6pm Sunday.
There are sister branches – smaller of course – at St Pancras International, London’s South Bank Centre, One New Exchange (in the city of London) Westgate, the giant shopping complex in west London, and at Cabot’s Circus, Bristol.
