National Library of Scotland

Door open days

Edinburgh

The National Library of Scotland is Scotland’s largest library.  Take this opportunity to learn more about the Library, the history of this impressive building and see behind the scenes including a visit to the ‘void’, an rarely seen underground space below George IV Bridge. James Craig’s original town plan for Edinburgh’s New Town is held in the collections at the National Library and an image of this will be displayed on a large screen in the boardroom, along with displays about the history and architecture of the National Library building.
