"Rare Books & Unique Atmosphere"

John Rylands Library, built during the 1890s, is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of modern Gothic architecture in the country. It houses many rare books and very early manuscripts (both religious and secular) within its stately, imposing interior. On entering, it feels as though one is being transported into a tranquil, well-kept Mancunian secret, with its superb paneling and furniture in Polish oak and bronze art nouveau metalwork. Regular exhibitions and displays highlighting aspects of the library's various collections are held, in addition to guided tours.
