About British Library

The UK's national library in a striking building, but is also host to a regular set of exhibitions.

There's usually a modest sized history exhibition, which is free to visit, and often some sort of art event in the main courtyard.

They also host headline event exhibitions a couple of times per year, which are usually paid entry, but fill an entire hall with the exhibits on display.

The library itself is not open to the public, but the rest of the site is.
