The home of English language books in The Netherlands.

In the heart of Amsterdam's book district in a stunning building, designed by renowned Dutch architect H.P. Berlage, our shop has a relaxed ambience, with knowledgeable, book-loving staff. As well as a large range of books we stock Greetings Cards, Stationery & Gifts, British food, Toys & Games, over four floors.

Sections of note are English and Dutch as a second language, Children's books, Dutch fiction in English translation and Young Adult LGBTQ+. If we do not have something in stock, we can order any available book at no extra charge.          

We place great emphasis on personal recommends from our booksellers, which you'll find throughout the store and we currently run a Classic Fiction book group and a Modern Fiction book group.
