NEW: Marx Memorial Library Virtual Tour

During the pandemic we have developed a virtual tour, held once a month on alternate Tuesdays/Thursdays - find out more here:

Our on-site tours as described below are currently suspended.

The Marx Memorial Library hosts twice weekly guided tours of our historic building. Trained guides offer visitors an insight into our unique, radical history.

Explore the building’s medieval cellar and historic vaults; visit the room where Lenin worked in exile 1902-3; view original displays such as the 1938 British Battalion banner of the volunteers who went to fight fascism in Spain; and learn about significant events such as the Paris Commune 1871 and the Mineworkers' Strike 1984-5 through our extensive collections.

At the heart of the British Labour movement for over 80 years, the Library has a fascinating story to tell.

Our twice weekly on Tuesday and Thursday at 11am and last approximately 45 minutes. £5/£3 unwaged.
