We’re now taking steps to preserve our delicate ancient buildings by limiting numbers on our daily tours, and asking all visitors to make a small contribution towards their upkeep. Packed with historical fact and fascinating stories, tours of Chetham’s Library are led by our expert staff and volunteers.  Explore our Medieval building, learn about Dr Dee and his dealings with the Devil, and take a seat at the very desk where Marx and Engels’ research led to The Communist Manifesto! Our tour of Chetham’s Library invites our visitors to admire the Hogwarts-esque gated shelves, home to over 60,000 of the UK’s rarest volumes, dating back as far as the 13th century.
