The English Bookstore | The Hague


The monumental yet elegant Passage houses a charming little bookshop: The English Bookstore. It's more or less across from its big Dutch cousin Boekhandel De Vries Van Stockum - a centuries-old local bookstore.

The English Bookstore is neither specifically UK nor US centered, but rather intended as a home-away-from-home for all people who - for whatever reason - prefer to read English books. It's a booklovers' haven for those who forgot to bring a book on their holiday in The Netherlands, for students, expats, and locals alike.

Whether you're on the hunt for a gorgeous leather-bound classic, the latest bestsellers, personal favorites of the very real people who work there, the latest hit on #booktok, a souvenir or gift for a business partner - they got you covered. Just looking to pour your heart out about that one book that you feel would be an addition everyone's life? Tell them all about it. They fully understand the feeling.

You can find our recently expanded all-English bookshop in De Passage, The Hague, on number 24.- a few doors down from our main bookstore (on number 11). Want to know more about our historic bookstores? Click here.

Online orders | Information and updates

For online purchases and click-and-collect, please use the general website (this website, where you are right now, The stockinformation on productpages for “Den Haag” relates to both the regular bookstore and The English Bookstore.

If you’ve placed an order in our webshop, you wil receive updates via email. Unfortunately, for now, the emails are all in Dutch. If you have trouble understanding them, you can always contact our customer service (for postal deliveries within the Netherlands) or our store (if you’ve chosen click & collect). Please note: we do not ship internationally.

Stock information | Book availability

Saw something on our website that you’d like to come and pick up as soon as possible? No problem! Just make sure that the store actually has stock of that item. You can see this on the product page in the “Voorraad in de winkel” block. Stores that have your book on the shelf are green. Stores that don’t have it, are colored red. If The English Bookshop is marked green, and thus your book is in stock there, please also telephone ahead so our booklovers can set it aside for you.

Also, if you're not sure, please call our booklovers at The English Bookstore. They are happy to help!

Because, especially with English pockets, there are sometimes multiple editions and they aren't always linked on our product page when, for instance, a classic is sold by different publishing houses. Our booklovers can help you solve this bookish mystery. You can also click the author name to see all the books that they published. But then again: J.K. Rowling, Rowling, J.K. and Joanne Rowling are all different people. According to computers, that is. So best just to call us!
