    Eine der größten Bibliotheken der Welt. Sehr schön, sehr ruhig. Kaffee ist ebenso gut. Wenn man hier ist, sollte man sich aber auch das Museum mit den handgeschriebenen Originalen ansehen.

    Inspiring exhibitions all year round, a great working place and a pleasant retreat for the curious. If you're into coffee don't miss out on Origin's great selection of espresso & filter coffees.

    Plan to spend half your day here because once you get in, you'll want to spend hours and hours walking around and learning about different kinds of books/writers.

    You can sign up to the reading room. They hold lots of creative thematic exhibits such as the recent ones regarding comic books and, most recently, gothic literature.

    It might not be the first choice on the sightseeing list for first-time London visitors but it's worth visiting. I like Gutenberg.

    There are two excellent cafes in the British Library: a small one outside at the front, and another at the back as you walk up the main stairs. Both make an excellent destination to meet for lunch.

    The temporary exhibitions are always worth a look, no more so than the current Maps exhibition. Reasonably good for free wifi, but can be patchy. Love the quirky gift shop.
