The Library

Library Whole

Home to over 100,000 natural history books, the Library at the Linnean Society showcases a classic double cube design, with majestic pillars rising to the roof. The engraved glass skylights allow natural light to flood in to this stunning room, making it a unique space in central London.

The library is currently NOT available for filming.
