The main research library of the University of Oxford, the Bodleian is one of the oldest libraries in Europe (opened in 1602, based on the collection of Thomas Bodley), and in the UK is second in size only to London's British Library. The Bodleian now possesses numerous branches throughout the university; visiting bibliophiles will be most keen to peruse the central site, which includes Duke Humfrey's Library above the Divinity School, the Old Schools Quadrangle with its Great Gate and Tower, the Radcliffe Camera, Britain’s first circular library, and the Clarendon Building.

Do the walking tour through Bodleian Library. Absolutely stunning! A MUST DO when in Oxford. The knowledge of the staff, the beauty of city blew my mind. I did the City of Oxford Walking Tour which took about an hour and a half. I wish I'd had more time in Oxford to then visit all the places pointed out on the tour and to take another tour. There is so much history that having someone explain just a little of it was an incredible experience.
Shout out to the amazing guide! The tour does leave you feeling a little insignificant after hearing some of the accomplishments that have come out of this city and this university!
