John Rylands Library


Vintage Vases and Bottles in the Shop
aka the most beautiful building in Manchester. Like seriously. It's basically a museum on the first few floors, with a cute lil shop and cafe on the ground. The highest floor (that you're allowed on) is the reading room, you can sit, bring a laptop, study there, and theres huge books in display cases. It'd also be the perfect place to base GCSE Art and Photography projects on.

On the first floor, there's rooms just filled with books, dating hundreds of years back, theres even fragments of papyrus from around 500AD.

The library actually reminded me a lot of Hogwarts, all the books, dimly lit corridors, stained glass windows and high ceilings with patterns all throughout the bricks.
