The British Library tour
The British Library tour

Friday 9 February 2018, Royal Society of Medicine
1 Wimpole Street
LONDON
W1G 0AE

The British Library is so much more than the national collection of all books published in the UK.  It started as the British Museum’s Department of Printed Books in 1753 and since then it has been legally entitled to copies of all UK journals, newspapers, maps and printed music. 

Designed by Colin St. John Wilson and opened in 1998, the building became controversial for its architecture and for running spectacularly over budget.  It ended up over two thirds larger than the original plan and a guided tour is the only way to appreciate the extent of its collections.

The first part of the tour includes the history of the collection and visit to the Viewing Gallery.  The second part of the tour is an introduction to the Library’s treasures, including the King’s Library (George III), the second largest atlas in the world and favourite items in the Sir John Ritblat Gallery.
