The English Bookshop in Stockholm Old Town - a new bookshop

The English Bookshop sig hangin over the new bookshop in Stockholm Old Town

[ UPDATE June 8th, 2015: After seven amazing years in Gamla stan/Old Town, we are now in a bigger shop in Södermalm's SoFo district, on Södermannagatan 22. ]

Located in the Stockholm Old Town, at Lilla Nygtan 11, the bookshop carry pretty much the same range in Stockholm as in the Uppsala shop, except for SF & Fantasy.

You will find the same welcoming atmosphere here, as the Uppsala English Bookshop is famous for: an interior jampacked with exciting books, relaxing chairs and a dedicated staff. We already love this new place in the Old Town of Stockholm and hope you will too!
