Plus 44 Guide to Oxford's Bodleian Library

Dover Castle

With more than six million books, one million maps and thousands of priceless manuscripts, the Bodleian Library is one of the world's great libraries and arguably the centre of the English language. The library was first established in the early 1300's and was secured by the Oxford University in 1410. Since 1610, the library has been entitled to receive a free copy of all books printed in England.

While access to certain parts of the library is by special arrangement and membership, walking around the courtyards is free access. Also a guided tour around key areas of the library is available - see below. The Bodleian is an exquisitely beautiful building and is located in the centre of Oxford, city of 'dreaming spires'.
