Gladstone’s Library

Nestled in a small village in North Wales is Britain’s finest (and probably only!) residential library. With over 250,000 printed items (specialising in theology, history, culture and politics), it is the national memorial to four times Liberal Prime Minister, William Gladstone, who founded it in 1894. Now the Library has 26 boutique-style bedrooms where you can stay 50 weeks a year; a bustling programme of literary events including courses and evening readings; as well as its own series of festivals – Gladfest, Hearth, and DemFest.
