  • The Radcliffe camera, library building Bodley at Oxford University, built on the project of James Gibbs between 1737 and 1749 BC. In 1327 the Bishop of Worcester Thomas Cobham has created a library in Oxford University Church of St. Mary. The collection was small, but because the books at that time were very expensive, students and norovili pull off precious volumes. Cobham offered chain book chains is quite normal practice in those days. Even today, the readers of the library may not lay down any book from the halls — exceptions are made only in special cases. Library, University of Oxford, is contesting from the Vatican the right to be called the oldest in Europe, and the British — the title of the largest book collection in the UK. And movie lovers will certainly appreciate the fact that it was the library of Oxford played the role of libraries of the school of witchcraft and wizardry Hogwarts. Now the camera is reading room of the library.

  • Great spot, an amazing building and brilliant spot for photography. Access can often be limited, but it's well worth taking the time to see it regardless.
  • Was not able to go inside but enjoyed the architecture of this building and the surrounding area. Great place for photography.
  • Impressive building. Nice to view. Unfortunately cannot be visited on the inside
  • Beautiful and unique building. The library itself is great for studying. It can get very busy during term time and all the desks fill up by 9.30am. There's something quite wonderful about working in the building.
  • Quite good to snap a picture of... one of the important buildings in oxford...
