The Old Library is the jewel in the crown of Trinity Hall and one of the hidden gems of Cambridge.
From 1350 to the present day, find out about our fascinating collection of manuscripts, early printed books and other holdings.
The Old Library houses a vast collection of manuscripts which includes medieval and post-medieval manuscripts, and annotated proof copies of published books.
The Old Library stands untouched, looking much as it did when it was first constructed in the 1590s.
With your help we can secure the future of this unique library and the treasures it contains!
Tours of the Old Library can be offered to individuals, small groups or larger groups, and conferences by prior arrangement.
