Visitor tours and bookings suspended

Chetham’s Library charity is run with the generous help of a team of volunteers. Many of our volunteers are currently taking necessary precautions as a result of Covid-19. We are therefore unable to run our regular week day tours or maintain visitor access to our reading room at this time. We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience, and look forward to welcoming visitors again in due course. Library staff will still be working; please use the email addresses under ‘Contact Us‘.

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 volunteers. Take a seat at the very desk where Marx and Engels’ research led to The Communist Manifesto, and view facsimiles of the very books they pored through; 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.
