                      Pocket Guide: Chetham's Library Chetham's Library Hotels

                      Anyone who has visited Manchester will know what a fabulous city this is. There is a fascinating industrial heritage to explore in the docks, canals and warehouses, showcased in world-class museums and portrayed by local artists like LS Lowry. Manchester has embraced its proud manufacturing heritage as leader in the cotton trade, but has also transformed itself into a modern city, buzzing with nightlife and a vibrant music scene. The shopping opportunities are exceptional, and the cultural attractions are second to none. As well as famous buildings such as the city's Museum of Science and Industry, try to see others like Chetham's Library from your Manchester hotel base and you'll not be disappointed.

                      Manchester Hotels for Chetham's Library

                      Chetham's library has the distinction of being the UK's oldest public reference library, and is free to use by the general public. It dates from the 17th Century and is housed in one of the old college buildings. The atmosphere is reminiscent of an MR James ghost story, all aged oak and leaded window panes, at a far remove from the bustling modern city that surrounds it. The actual furniture and fittings in the library are original, from 1654, and you don't need to make an appointment to visit and enjoy browsing the shelves. You get a real sense of the past here, and in high summer it offers a civilised refuge from the heat, just in case the cool retreat of your hotel in Manchester is too far away for a quick dash back!

                      Enjoy a Good Read at Chetham's Library with Manchester Hotels

                      Marx and Engels used to come here to plot the overthrow of Capitalism, and they clearly recognised a real hidden gem when they saw one! The interior, with its wooden beams and dark shelving, is reminiscent of the fictional Hogwarts, and amongst its treasures is a first edition of Paradise Lost. There are also some personal effects of Queen Elizabeth's magician John Dee, who was a warden of Manchester College and a famous occultist of the time. It's easy to find from and Manchester hotel, between Manchester Cathedral and the National Football Museum.
