The Gladstone Library

As well as being a place for use by Liberals from across the UK when in London, One Whitehall Place was also built to be a ‘political and historical library’ to be  a permanent memorial to the services to the country of the Right Hon, W. E. Gladstone.

The library amassed an impressive collection of publications and was particularly strong on nineteenth century commerce, economics, politics, religion and sociology. The collection included a broad range of publications on other topics of modern politics and history, making it an important source for modern historians researching into these areas.

The collection of 65,000 publications is now held on trust by the University of Bristol, where it is housed in appropriate conditions.  But in order to retain the character of the library, we have faithfully recreated the spine of each individual book.

This unique setting offers 280 square meters of naturally lit space that accommodates up to 300 people in theatre style. It can also be used in conjunction with the adjoining reading and writing room.
