"We are pleased that Pakistan and England Test rivalry, which has historically produced close and tight matches, will return to our backyards in December," Pakistan Cricket Board director Zakir Khan said in a statement.
The tour opens with the first Test in Rawalpindi on December 1-5, before Multan hosts the second on December 9-13.
The third and final Test will be in Karachi on December 17-21.
International cricket has gradually returned since 2015, but suffered another setback when New Zealand pulled out of a tour minutes before a one-day international was due to start in September last year, citing security alerts.
Pakistan successfully hosted Australia for the first time since 1998 earlier this year.
The three fixtures will count towards the ICC World Test Championship.
Schedule of Tests:
First Test: December 1-5, Rawalpindi
Second Test: December 9-13, Multan
Third Test: December 17-21, Karachi
