A chance to explore our collections up close and learn about the fascinating history of print.

Visit our atmospheric print workshop to see printing presses from the 18th to the 20th Century. Our workshop team, which includes journeymen and printers who worked in Fleet Street and the wider print industry, will take you through the story of print from the days of hot metal type.

You will also explore our historical reading room where our resident expert will show you some of the treasures of our library collection, whether papyrus dating back to 1200BC, works printed by Caxton in the 15th century, or original artwork for typefaces by the likes of Edward Johnston and British road sign models by Margaret Calvert & Jock Kinneir.
