The doorman told us that the library is closed to the public since COVID.... My daughters and I were very disappointed, because we had the strong impression that it would be accessible between 12 and 2. We could hardly believe it but he was so firm in his statement that visiting was only possible after complicated pre-online-booking, or a request through email. Now I'm quite shocked to see that apparently somebody visited last July, and left an enthusiastic review. What is the status now? I'm confused. And still disappointed.

This is the coolest attraction and library in all of England. They have world renowned collections that are donated from various high-society members as well as famous politicians and educators. The large statue also has an interesting story. Too bad Westminster didn’t get him haha! The staff is super helpful and were great to ensure no photos were taken of the Winnie the Pooh exhibit. This is a lovely place that does an incredible job of preserving books and important documents.

No photography allowed in the library, but very interesting, and worth the wait. Limited public access. A few interesting orginal manuscripts housed there, (ie. "Winne the pooh")

Despite the surly staff, I loved the library design and the wonderful books on display. The building design with its empty ground floor becasue of floods in Wren's time was most interesting. Not being able to take photos inside was disappointing.

We went there and there was a queue. We waited nearly half an hour. The door man would not make any explanation and said "last 10". He counted the people, we were the 11th. And only two more persons were waiting with us.
He must be sacked!!!!! Or he must do his job as he should be.
He was sooooo rude.
He affected all our experience.
It's unacceptable and shame!!!!

Firstly, let me state that I fully understand the need to restrict numbers and for visitors to respect the surroundings, and even to only be open for a short period of time daily.

However, today was the 38degree day. I got there about 12:30 (it’s open 12-2 well actually 1:55 but I’ll get to that), and was met by a queue. Fair enough. But I and those around me were in that queue for over an hour. While there was some shade, as the line inched towards the building, you were made to stand in the sun, or the bloke who obviously LOVED his power, shooed you out of the shaded portico, even though there was still plenty of space for those leaving the building to get past. He also made it quite clear and not too politely, that you might not get in at all - the last entry is 1:50. When I did get in, the place was amazing and I had 15 mins until the 2pm closing time. Sweet. Except that the same rude individual came and asked us all to leave at 1:55 - no argument. What the hell. If you are only going to let people in there until 1:55 then put that on the damn signs. So after over an hour of standing in 38 degrees getting spoken to like a naughty child then finally getting in there, I missed the last two displays, which I could have easily knocked over in the remaining 5 mins to the advertised closing time. Trinity College clearly is sitting on some valuable treasures and is only giving a token gesture of sharing them with the world. Left this visitor with a very bad impression.

Christopher Wren designed the library in Trinity College, Cambridge. He also designed many of the grand new building of Lo Dom after the devastating fire of 1666 including St Pauls Cathedral and Kensington Palace, and his design inspired the Long Room at Trinity College, Dublin.

The library displays some of the most significant books of recent history. It has a first edition of "The Origin of Species" that Darwin gave to his mentor at Cambridge, Adam Sedgwick. It so shocked Sedgwick that he annotated almost every page pointing out Darwin's many failures to comprehend the religion based origin of mankind then accepted by all Western societies. Also Wittgenstein's notebook musings that became "On Certainty."

Truly a treat to visit. Only 15 people are allowed into the museum at a time so plan to wait in line.

This unique library in Trinity College is opened to the public during lunch hours as the library is the office of staffs. There are many unique books on display and one of them is an ancient bible in Hebrew.
