Offical Guided Tours: Parker Library Tour

For the first time since its foundation nearly 500 years ago the Parker Library will be admitting tours of the Library on Monday and Thursday afternoons at 14.30. Tours leave from the Visitor Information Centre and will include part of Corpus Christi College as well as a tour of the library and a sample of its amazing collection which includes the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, principal source book for early English history, the sixth-century Gospels of Saint Augustine, the Bury Bible and the best manuscript of Chaucer's Troilus.*

*We cannot guarantee a specific book/manuscript will be on show.

What people have said about our tours...

"We were delighted with our guide who I can personally say was the best guide I have ever had on the numerous tours I have undertaken both here and abroad. She judged her audience well and her sense of humour struck many chords!"
