Recommendation by Lemi
Another library that bears a striking resemblance to Hogwarts, the University of Manchester’s John Rylands Library features vaulted ceilings, soaring pillars, stained glass windows, and moody candelabras. Though it never made it into the movies, it could easily pass as the Great Hall of Hogwarts. The library’s Neo-Gothic features make it look more like a cathedral. It works because any bibliophile knows reading time is sacred. Roam freely and snap away, the John Rylands Library’s first floor is open to the public. Researchers and scholars are busy at work upstairs, so keep a respectful volume.
