Book tickets

Join us for an exclusive after hours chance to explore the medieval stone passages, secret staircases and richly panelled rooms of Chetham’s Library.

After the Library has closed to the public and the dust of the day has settled, we will be opening rooms and passageways that are normally closed to the public, for a unique and magical experience.

This is an opportunity for visitors to enjoy the building without a tour guide, and soak up the magical atmosphere of our 600-year-old building.

Please note that due to the nature of the building, lighting will be low in some areas.

Suitable for adults and young people over 14.
