This is a very impressive space (not least because he was 9 mtr high and can accommodate 30,000 books. Striking is the call (fire level) that goes if a debate will take place.

  • Am here with colleagues/staff at work. We got a tour of the inner court, Knight's Hall and the second Room. Fine tour had over the Guide, you can learn more than usual. We even have a debate. Everything here is super protected, anywhere running police and military police. Was well worth it!
