Cheetham’s Library

Believed to be the oldest public library in the English-speaking world, this cultural gem with furniture and fittings dating back to 1654 is housed within a stunning sandstone building dating from 1421. Filled with ancient books and dark, panelled rooms, it’s just one of Manchester’s many historic libraries, with the Victorian Gothic John Ryland Library and Portico Library also well worth a visit when in the city centre.
