As others have mentioned, this library has a vast collection of books and written material specifically about London. It's more of a reference library than a general library, so useful for anyone doing research on London. Not so much for the general public though.

This is a huge collection of printed and other material relating to London and the City of London in particular. It has special exhibitions from time to time, as well as running s range of training courses. The interior is modern, so it seems a little plain by contrast with the grandeur of the rest of the Guildhall site, but that’s not a problem when you can access so much wonderful data.

A rich library. Readers go here to have references about History of London. A collection of almost 200,000 books is there. News papers, periodicals are available. Photography is not permitted. They hold many events and exhibitions. Good we found time to visit this place.

We visited specifically to see one of their small exhibitions, about Roman London. On arriving, as we entered, we were told that it had closed. As it happened, it hadn't - it still has ten days to run. We persisted, and saw the exhibition. In fact, it DID seem as if it was closing - some coloured photos - explanatory handouts tucked in a corner - and a couple of maps strewn on a table, rather than mounted, were all that were to be seen. Am more than happy to do my own interpretation: but didn't like the feeling that I had wandered into something that was being dismantled at the end of show. Could do better. A shame, because the library itself is pleasant and welcoming.

A great place to visit if you are interested in London's history. It is sited next to the City Business Library (great for lots of free business information and some inexpensive courses). I went along for a short training session and stayed the rest of the day in the library. This had not been my plan, but the information was so interesting. Lots of books in store (as well as on the shelves) which take only a short time to retrieve. Very helpful librarians. Nice, clean and uncluttered place to study or read.
