Tea Room and Map Room

To your left is the entrance to the Tea Room. The Tea Room provides a variety of food and drink available to purchase throughout the day. There is also a water fountain here. You may use the Tea Room without making a purchase and are welcome to eat your own food and drink here.

Walk through the doorway in front of you to the North Front corridor. To the left of the door way is the Map Room. The Map Room closes between 12.45 and 14.00 Monday to Friday and is closed all day on Saturdays. It is possible to arrange for maps to be transfered to the Manuscripts Room for use on Saturdays if requests are made on the previous Friday.

We are now coming to the end of our tour. Walk back along the North Front Corridor towards the Entrance Hall. Stop when you reach the Helpdesk for our final stop
