On my last visit to England in January 2014, I visited one of my favourite places in the north of England – the John Rylands library right in the heart of the city of Manchester. It’s a truly beautiful neo-Gothic building housing rare collections of immense significance. It was built in 1890s so is a perfect example of the Victorian design the city is famous for.

Here are just a few pictures of this incredible building.

This is one of my favourite pictures of the library. The design is incredible to view in person. It has an interesting optical illusion when you look up. For scale, see the girl to the right of the picture on the balcony. It’s massive.
