Enjoy England travel photography and fall in love with Great Britain tourism. Visit Bodleian Library in Oxford, England. Oxford is a spectacular place to take travel photographs.

Just as the history of the Bodleian Library dates back to the 15th century, the oldest portion of the library is known as Duke Humphrey’s Library. Into the 17th century, the Humphrey Library went through a period of steady decline and soon only three of the old chained manuscripts existed.

Sir Thomas Bodley supported the further development of the library and saw many of Bodley’s own books, a massive collection indeed, donated to the building. It opened in 1602 under the name of Bodleian’s library. Harry Potter scenes, featuring the Hogwarts library were filmed in Duke Humphrey’s library.
