Chatham’s Library in Manchester is the oldest public library in the UK (and some say the English speaking world). Founded way way back in 1653, it’s been open ever since and will give you that Hogwarts feel as you read one of 60,000 books printed before 1851.
As well as this historical relic, there’s also the Victorian, neogothic John Rylands Library, and the unbelievably grand Central Library in the heart of the city. Escape the city noise; pick up a book and feel inspired.
