View the world-famous Pre-Raphaelite murals in the Oxford Union Library. Entrance via Library Reception.
Since its foundation, the Union has maintained a library for the use of its members. One of the largest lending libraries in Oxford, it is of particular relevance to students studying Classics, English, History, Law, PPE and Theology. In recent years, the Science section has been expanded. The library takes a number of academic journals and has a significant reference collection, which would be of special interest to researchers on 19th Century Britain.
Postcards and a booklet about the murals are on sale in the library. Photography is not permitted in the Old Library.
£15 per group a short talk (approx. 30-45 minutes) on the history of the murals can be provided.
