TOURS OF THE LONDON LIBRARY
Friday 6th – Sunday 8th May
Take a special tour of The London Library and discover its fascinating history on a guided walk around the historic bookstacks and beautiful reading rooms. Find out about eminent members past and present and then enjoy a display of treasures celebrating 175 years in the life of a unique institution. From Conan Doyle’s membership form, to a letter written by Oscar Wilde from Reading Gaol and books which were blasted with shrapnel when a bomb hit the Library during the Second World War, the display will include rare, fragile and little-seen items from the Library’s extraordinary collections.
You should allow 75 minutes for your visit, to include a 45-minute guided tour of the Library and time to explore the special display.
Tours take place throughout the weekend at the following times:
Friday 6th May – 10am, 1pm, 2.30pm, 4pm & 7pm
Saturday 7th May – 10am, 1pm, 2.30pm, 4pm & 7pm
