Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

You can’t miss this bombastic library thanks to its distinctive circular shape. Its raised dome roof studded with 16-sided huge clerestory windows and finished in green copper is distinctive, to say the least. Designed by Frederick Gibberd, the library was built in the 1960s at the same time as Gibberd's best-known building, Liverpool's Roman Catholic Cathedral, and the two share some characteristics. It had a major redesign in 2011, which means despite being built in 1965 it still feels mighty modern. As well as a host of reading material you’ll find free study spaces, conferences, seminars and yoga and fitness classes.
