The Bodleian Library is housed in a remarkable group of buildings which forms the heart of the University of Oxford. The library was founded by Sir Thomas Bodley and officially opened in 1602.
Regular guided tours allow visitors to step inside the historic rooms of the Old Bodleian Library, including the 15th-century Divinity School, medieval Duke Humfrey's Library and the iconic Radcliffe Camera.
Visitors will learn about the history of the Libraries, see ancient books, discover the secret reading room built for royalty, find out what life would have been like for early students of divinity, and see the place where Parliament sat several times in the 17th century.
