The library is a bit hidden away and fairly small but there is so much beautiful art to see. If you have a spare hour or so this could be a good place to visit.

This is a beautiful private library that's modeled in the Greek Revival style. It opened in the early 1800s. It's free and open to the public to browse the building ad its public art gallery including the beautiful sculptures inside. It's small, so it won't take long to have a look. Heads up, the book shelves are roped off as its for members only. The building itself is beautiful. Be sure to look up!

A lovely 19th-century library to while away your time and indulge in some lovely tea amidst myriads of books. This was a hard place to leave.

Estábamos por los jardines de Piccadilly y se nos largó a llover. Caminando para buscar cobijo dimos con esta biblioteca (y nos dimos cuenta que Manchester las tiene muy bonitas). No siendo socio de la biblioteca, sólo se tiene acceso a la cafetería y a un centro de exposiciones, no a la zona donde están los libros. Sin embargo, hemos podido observar que es muy bonita y lo mantienen muy bien. La entrada es gratuita.
