I would make a special trip to see this place. The library is fantastic. The restaurant at the top has lovely views and wonderful food, at great prices. I had an apple pastry with chocolate sauce and coffee for 3.50e, and it was lush. You could easily go there for an evening meal too, it's open till late and serves a vast array of food.

If only all libraries were like this, we were really impressed. Great views from the top. Enjoyable couple of hours spent here and topped by excellent (good value and tasty) lunch. Something for everyone.
