One of my favourite Oxford Libraries

Not sure its every open to the public although often are public events and lectures but you won't see the stunning 18th library interior - the public areas are1930s art deco

Not really a tourist destination the Taylorean sits next door to the Ashmolean Museum. Talks and lectures here, often with a languages focus, are sometimes open to the general public.
