The British Library

London, Great Britain


Harriet Wiseman

The British Library receive a copy of every book published in the UK, this means that each year they get about 3 million new titles to add to their 150 million copy collection. There are some amazing treasures among those numbers that are accessible and on show, for example the Magna Carter, Leonardo Di Vinci’s notebook, manuscripts written by the Beatles and some of the rarest sound pieces in the world. You can enter the Library and the treasures gallery for free. If you want to take out some of the amazing books from the shelves and have a good read in the historical rooms where Virginia Woolfe herself sat, then you will need to register on site for a Reader Pass – these are also free but you must be over 18 and have both your passport and a letter with your address on it.
