Monarchs and their books

In association with the British Library, the Royal Collection is offering two rare opportunities to visit and learn about the present Royal Library, re-established at Windsor Castle in the 1830s. 

The Royal Library contains precious books and manuscripts from across the centuries, many with fascinating links to the monarchs who owned them. 

Participants will also visit the Royal Bindery, in which the sovereign’s books have, for hundreds of years, been repaired, and bound using traditional methods and tools.

Limited places: all tickets £30
