About This Bookstore

Welcome to our Chelmsford bookshop

Foyles Chelmsford

The newest bookshop to wear the iconic red Foyles sign over its door opened in Chelmsford in September 2016, not far from the ancestral home of the Foyle family.

We're proud to have opened our first shop in Essex, where book lovers can enjoy all that's great about our century-old business in our bright, modern new home on Bond Street.

We have some 15,000 books over two floors, and in October 2017 we joined forces with popular local restaurant A Canteen, who have opened their second location in our bookshop. A Canteen at Foyles serves a wide range of brunch and lunch dishes, along with cake and artisan coffee. Come in and try the new menu!

Staff picks from Foyles Bond Street Chelmsford.


Midnighter and Apollo

Midnighter and Apollo - Steve Orlando & Fernando Blanco

From their days as founding members of the Authority, the heroes Midnighter and Apollo have been forever linked. However, Midnighter's creator wants to destroy him and sends Apollo to the underworld to tear them apart. But Midnighter isn't afraid to face the gates of hell for his lover. Beautifully staged, written and drawn and really shows DC's darker side.













I Capture the Castle

I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith

A coming-of-age story set in a crumbling Suffolk castle in the 1930s. I don't know anyone who has read this charming book and not fallen in love with it!
















The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made

The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made - Greg Sestero & Tom Bissell.


In 2003, a film called “The Room” was released at a budget of $6,000,000 and closed after two weeks. This is the story of the making of that film written by the co-star. The film is regarded as the worst in history. This is compulsory reading about one man's disregard for logical film-making.
