Grant and Cutler at Foyles : The UK's Largest Foreign Language Bookseller

About Us

Established in 1936, for 75 years Grant & Cutler was the largest foreign-language bookseller in the UK, stocking books and other media in more than 150 languages. In 2011 we merged with iconic UK bookseller Foyles, winner of the National Bookseller of the Year award in 2010 and 2013.

In November 2013 the Grant & Cutler website was merged with the Foyles site. However, after giving due consideration to customer feedback we have reinstated the original Grant & Cutler site, which now runs in tandem with the Foyles site. The same titles can be found on both sites and customers can choose which to use. We suggest that the easiest way to find the same book on the Foyles site is to search by ISBN, either by retyping it or by using the copy and paste facility.

Customers with a Foyles/Grant & Cutler at Foyles account can order on either site, but we regret that, for technical reasons, card orders can only be placed on the Foyles site. If you are a library, school or other institution and would like to open an account, please contact us for details. Personal customers who wish to pay by card, gift card, Foyalty points or Paypal should use the Foyles site.

Grant & Cutler at Foyles specialises in the major Western European languages and Russian, but we pride ourselves on covering all living languages, from Afrikaans to Zulu. We also carry substantial stocks in Arabic and the Eastern European languages, particularly Polish. It is also exciting that, as part of Foyles, we can now offer a full range of EFL material, though this is accessible only on the Foyles site.
