Mr Tulk cafe

Named for our first librarian Augustus Tulk, the Library's cafe is the perfect place to fuel your research with a delicious breakfast or lunch, indulge in some coffee and cake, or relax with a glass of wine. Friends of the Library enjoy a 10 per cent discount on tea and coffee.

Opening hours: Mon–Fri 8am–4.30pm, Sat & Sun 9am–4pm.
