Packed with historical facts and fascinating stories, tours of Chetham’s Library are led by our expert staff and volunteers. Explore the medieval building, hear about the magical Dr. Dee, admire the Hogwarts-esque gated shelves of the library and take a seat at the very desk where Marx and Engels’ research led to The Communist Manifesto!
Tours last roughly one hour.
We recommend all visitors read the Visiting Information before booking tickets.
Visitors will not be admitted 15 minutes or more after the tour has begun.
