Guided Walk/Tour


Bodleian Library self-guided audio guides are available in English, French and German. Audio tours do not include visits to the reading rooms, (rooms with books) but allow you to explore the external quadrangles and to see the magnificent Divinity School.
Daily mini tours (30 min) and standard walk-in tours (60 min) are led by qualified Bodleian guides. All guided tours include a visit to Duke Humfrey's Library.

Extended guided tours (90 minutes) run on most Wednesdays and at most weekends and may be booked online. Extended tours include a visit to the architectural icon of Oxford, the Radcliffe Camera: the first rotunda library built in Britain.
Please note that because the Bodleian is a working library, the content of tours may alter and certain of the areas listed above may be omitted.
