Uppsala, north of Stockholm, is home to the best book shop in the world, according to The London Book Fair International Excellence Awards. The bookstore, The Uppsala English Bookshop, is run by Jan Smedh.

"We have around 13,000 titles, but every book is hand-picked," says Smedh. Whether they were recommended it by a customer, publisher, or they found it at a book fair, "we could tell you something about all of these books".

"Over a cup of tea in a courtyard behind the shop, the same courtyard that receives weekly deliveries of half a ton of books from Essex, we discuss the mutual cultural admiration between Swedes and Brits." 

Hey i'm from Essex! Good to know that we supply the best bookshop on Earth Laughing
