  • Lovely place to stop for a break, or to come and read or do research. Very friendly staff makes you feel at home.
  • A little known hidden gem, well worth the trip, an incredible private library with a vast array of texts. Even the architecture and decor of the building is stunning
  • This library is tucked away and can be hard to find. I've visited mainly during open days and art exhibitions (held in the central cafe / gallery area). The rest of the building is not accessible to the public since it's a members only library - but anyone who is interested can apply. The interiors are lovely and it's worth a wander.
  • Nice place to visit
  • Friends from London were visiting me, so I brought them to see some beautiful pieces of art. Quite extraordinary colours! We were so impressed. We will never forget this amazing experience.
