Bishopsgate Institute & Libraries

Founded in 1895 as a public library, public hall and meeting rooms for people living and working in the City of London, it provided an independent meeting place for people with shared interests, further education classes and library facilities for an impoverished area of London.

The important reference Library still offers free public access to its world-renowned collections on London, labour, free thought and co-operation. Also research materials for local and family historians, lunchtime and evening classes, lectures and cultural events are available.

The unusual Grade II* listed building designed by Charles Townsend combines elements of the Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau styles as can also be seen in his Whitechapel Art Gallery building.
