Access and Visitor Information
We’re closed to the public but open for venue hire (within current guidelines).
Visits are by arrangement only.
We’ll continue to update this page with visitor information as things develop.
Conway Hall Library is (usually) open to all. Whether you are conducting research, need a space to study, or just wish to enjoy our atmospheric Arts and Crafts style library.
Under current guidelines (as of Nov 2020), we are unable to welcome visitors to the Library. However, we welcome research and general enquiries via our online enquiry form, telephone or by post and aim to respond within 10 working days. Please consult the collections pages and for information about our collections. Unfortunately, due to limited staff capacity, we are unable to answer in-depth research queries.
When we are open, members of Conway Hall Ethical Society may borrow books and we are also open as a reference library to non-members. Free WiFi, access to power sockets and a multi-copier for scanning and copying items are available. You will need to Library staff if you wish to photograph our collections.
We are committed to promoting inclusive practice at Conway Hall. Due to the constraints of our historic building there currently is no step-free access to the Library, but we are happy to discuss how we can make our materials accessible to you. We vary the location of Library events with ground level rooms, and will use your comments to enable us to develop ways to ensure that everyone is able to attend events in the future. Please contact us for further information about accessing the Library.
