Warm welcome space at The British Library

Our warm, safe and spacious building at St Pancras is free to enter and explore, with free exhibitions showcasing the extraordinary items in our collections. We also host regular events, many of which don’t cost a thing, both in person and online.

The Reading Rooms are also free to use – you just have to apply for a Reader Pass, and then you can look at our collections of books and materials as often as you like.

We welcome little ones and their adults to our Family Station on the last Sunday of every month and on Friday mornings (10am to 12pm) over the winter. You'll find a colourful base from which to enjoy our building. We’ve stocked it with children’s books and activities to get you started on a free Library adventure, with hot drinks and juice provided.

We also regularly provide free tickets for our paid exhibitions and events to local community members. Get in touch with [email protected] to learn more, or to be added to our local newsletter.
