The British Library could be called London’s national Library. The library contains over 150 million items. From texts to more recent digital items all the way to famous historical documents. They have books and newspapers from around the world as well. You can also visit the Library to see their special exhibits. They have entire rooms dedicated entirely historical religious texts. They also have an impressive collection of rare and historic stamps. They also have a conservation centre where you can see how rare and historical documents are lovingly restored.

The British Library is a wonderful way to pass an afternoon. I love walking among the books and seeing items from around the world. Be sure to visit their special exhibitions while you are there. Some of the rarest documents are housed here, so make a day or a long afternoon at the library. This attraction can be particularly fun on a dreary London day. They also have cafes that you can take in a nice cup of tea during your visit.
