The British Library

Museums

The British Library is one of the world's largest research libraries, holding over 150 million items in all known languages and formats. The Library's collection is second only to the American Library of Congress and includes around 25 million books, along with historical manuscripts and items dating back as far as 300BC.

The library contains a copy of every publication produced in the UK and Ireland, artwork by artists such as Antony Gormley and Eduardo Paolozzi and a host of other historical works, including the Magna Carta, the Gutenberg Bible, Shakespeare's First Folio and the Lindisfarne Gospels.

In the middle of the building is a large four-story glass tower, containing the King's Library, which contains 65,000 printed volumes along with other materials collected by King George III between 1763 and 1820.

With the museum being the size it is, it is well worth a guided tour and by far the best way to take in all that this vast space has to offer. Alongside all the galleries the library also offers some special exhibitions, events, films, musical performances and poetry readings. Please do check the official website, http://www.bl.uk/, to see what is currently on the go at the library.

Admission to the Library is free, but you will be charged for one of the many informative guides - its well worth it!
