Radcliffe Camera | Tourope

Funded by Dr John Radcliffe, designed by James Gibbs and built between 1737 and 1748, this grand circular building in the middle of Radcliffe Square is an iconic landmark in Oxford and a working library.

This domed classical building is considered to be one of England’s earliest examples of a round library. This lovely masterpiece is actually a gift from Dr Radcliffe showing his appreciation to the town where he became famous.
