Old Bodleian Library
The Bodleian Library is a historic listed building, and we regret there are no lifts available. Guided tours involve stairs, and the extended tour includes some steep stairs and a substantial amount of walking.
Monday – Friday: 10am – 5.30pm
Saturday: 10am – 5pm
Sunday: 11am – 5pm
General ground floor areas of the Bodleian Library are accessible by wheelchair, but not the floors above ground, including Duke Humfrey's Library.
Visitors with hearing aids may request a hearing loop which connects wirelessly to the guide's microphone. We recommend contacting a member of our staff prior to the tour to find out more details.
The library can be accessed via a ramp at its Broad Street entrance. The public areas – including the exhibition galleries, Bodleian Café and The Zvi Meitar Bodleian Shop – are all located on the ground floor. For more information, including images of our step-free entrances and accessible toilets, view our full Weston Library Access Guide.
