  • A really beautiful place to visit if you're interested in books or history. You will need to book in advance as the library is visit by appointment only. The volunteer guide will walk round and tell you about the history of the building. The books are locked away, as expected, but it really doesn't detract from how special this place is. There are some display cases featuring books open at various pages, which I imagine will change regularly for conservation purposes. Visit, you won't be disappointed.
  • Such amazing library. Free entry, guided tour, history is live here.
  • Beautiful and historical place. Look for Jonathan's guided trip to get an extended access to several nooks and crannies. Founded during Cromwell's Republic, library's buildings survived from 1421.
  • A beautiful and fascinating place in Manchester that must be visited.
  • Incredible. One of Manchesters best kept secrets. There is free public access where you step back in time into a magical place. An historical tardis! The free lunch time concerts performed by the brilliant students were a privilege to attend.
