What makes us unique

WHSmith Paris carries a full range of books in English. You'll find Fiction, Non-Fiction, Schoolbooks, Travel, Leisure or Academic, and the largest department in Paris for Magazines and Children books. But we also carry a selection of French bestsellers.



Our booksellers provide advice and share their passion in both English and French (and some other languages for some of them!).




Let's make it short: our selection of international fashion magazines is the largest in Europe. We carry more than 15 editions of Vogue, and we do have the most trendy magazines you could ever dream of.



Some famous authors may be hard to find the day of their release. As a major bookshop in Paris, publishers do treat us well. You can always pre-order it at WHSmith, and make sure you get your copy without delay.

Just call 01 53 45 84 40.


Reservation by phone (01 53 45 84 40) or on our website is free. Please don't hesitate, to make sure you'll find what you need on your next visit!




We regularly work with the main English and American schools and institutions, teachers from bilingual sections in French middle and high schools, and of course with the British Council. Our "ELT" section (English Learning Teaching) is by far the largest in France. Our specialized team on the first floor will assist you and find the right book... which is probably in stock.



Should you have professional needs, such as a quotation for a christmas gift to your employees, or reservation of specific magazines on a regular basis, please do contact us. Some of our people are dedicated to professionals and used to fulfilling their requirements.



We selected some typical hard-to-find British and American products in our Gifts and Stationery department, such as China, Scarves, Licensed products as well as in our Grocery section: Marmite, Teas, Mustards, Seasoning, Cereals, Dr Pepper...




Love candies? Our Confectionery section is full of surprises. Here you'll find varieties you could not find anywhere else in Paris: Cadbury, Hershey's, creme Eggs,Reese's, even some KitKat bars you've never heard about!



It might be one of the best hidden and secret places in Paris: on the first floor of our Bookshop, you'll find a quiet and cosy Café for having a break, arranging a discreet business meeting and of course enjoying the best cream tea in town, with our own very famous scones.
