jonnytuna: I am archiving most of my geocaches as since recent events I feel that Geocaching is an inappropriate sport for Central London
any travel bugs will be put back into another cache

Geocache Description:

This cache sits proudly behind Newton's Bottom.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO ENTER THE BRITISH LIBRARY GROUNDS TO FIND THIS CACHE- ACCESS IS FROM THE ROAD.

It is located near to the spot where I took this picture.

a fantastic collection of books, stamps and maps- and the cafe isnt bad either.

My favourite part of the British Library is the moving book stacks, known fondly as the "Borg Cube"

Down in the basement is a fantastic optical illusion known as the Paradoxymoron

Although no longer advertised, the Lindisfarne Gospels are still on display and highly reccomended

access to all the public areas is free.

Please note the piazza's opening times.
Mon, Wed, Thu, Fri: 09:30-18:00, Tue 09:30-20:00, Sat: 09:30-17:00, Sun: 11:00-17:00

Thanks to the British Library for giving me permission to place this.
