A tour of the amazing art on public display around the Library.

Enjoy a tour of the work of art on public display in the British Library’s St Pancras building. When the St Pancras building was first designed, its architect Colin St John Wilson had a specific idea of where and what artworks should be on display, and included a range of historical and contemporary material throughout the building. 

Including those works that speak to the history of the Library’s collections and those that reflect its place as the national library of the UK, this tour will move from Paolozzi to Gormley and from Kitaj to Hepworth, to explore some of the different artworks on display.

Please note that there is a considerable amount of walking and standing on the tour.

Places are limited to 15 people.

The tour will last for approximately 60 minutes and leave from the Information Desk.

Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the start time of this event.
