Upcoming closures

Web maintenance at the British Library

Please note a number of upcoming closures.

Published date:

May, June and July closures 

Due to a number of events to mark the Library’s 50th birthday there will be some planned closures over the next few months.

These include the full closure of our site in St Pancras from 16.30 on Thursday 6 July and from 14.00 on Tuesday 11 July. Our site at Boston Spa will close at 14.00 on Wednesday 12 July.

Please visit our opening hours page for the full list of closures.

Transport strikes

We’re aiming to open as usual on days affected by the planned transport strikes, 31 May and 3 and 4 June. Some services may be limited or close earlier than usual due to staffing issues. We will update you with any further changes.

Thank you for your understanding.
