A peaceful haven...Once inside away from the hustle and bustle of one of Manchester's busiest streets...Deansgate you'll find John Ryland's Library a masterpiece of Victorian gothic architecture.
Built in the 1880's and now part of the University of Manchester it houses a hoard of interesting books and manuscripts in the most beautiful setting. Apparently this building took 10 years to build and you can certainly appreciate why when you observe the fine structural detail.
I would without doubt recommend you to include this in your itinerary or just have a relaxing mooch around if you're in town with a friend and have a coffee and cake in their tempting coffee shop. It's open very day with shorter hours on a Monday and Sunday.
So glad I've had the pleasure of visiting this little jewel of Manchester's heritage several times. Never tire of it.
