About
Our aim is to be a booklover's bookshop; the sort of place where you can lose yourself in the shelves for hours, browsing and relaxing in a chair to the soft music we play, while the river Fyris gently flows by a block away.

Somehow this small bookshop in nondescript Upsalla manages to have better choice and more interesting books than bookshops in the UK.

Wow! Cannot believe I am the first one to rate this place! I was moving from Portugal to Northern Sweden when I visited it, and I had to buy some English books, because I knew I wouldn´t find many up here! Besides all the other genres, there´s an absolutely fantastic corner only on History (WWII, Communism, Vietnam..., well, all you can imagine and more!)... It is difficult to decide what to bring... It´s a shame I am so far away from Uppsala =(
This bookshop is very well managed and organized by the owner!

This cosy bookshop is well worth a visit should you run out of bedtime reading during your stay in Uppsala. Very helpful staff, and a cool selection of textile carrier bags is a bonus to a well stocked shop.

The English Bookshop is just that; an English book shop. With rows and rows of books stacked high in a structured, yet beautifully chaotic way, the English Bookshop is worth a visit for all bibliophiles out there!

Uppsala English Bookshop is Sweden's best bookstore. The whole place oozes with charm and the talented staff will give you a warm welcome. Wholly recommended are their bookcircles that they arrange in both Uppsala and Stockholm, complete with tea and cookies as well as great discussions.

They are surprisingly well-stocked, taking care in having a steady flow of new books and are especially good on sci-fi, fantasy, fiction, history as well as current affairs.

This is one of those places you want to support. They are the good guys in the battle against worldsuck.

This is a real gem to have in a Swedish town, a little bit of that cosy British bookshop feeling. The shop is packed with great authors and titles for adults, teenagers and children. The staff are friendly and helpful. The are events and readings most month. Hope you visit and enjoy the experience.
