Por qué lo recomienda la gente local
This building near King’s Cross is an amazing blend of modern architecture and ancient leather-bound tomes. It’s really pleasant to sit and use their fast wifi or have a meeting in the cafe or public area while gazing up at the King’s Library—65,000 volumes assembled by George III and displayed in a striking glass column. For the comfiest spot, look for the padded leather armchairs with coveted built-in electrical outlets. You’ll have to join the queue of regulars that forms before the library opens in order to nab one.

Great place to study if you're in London on a course or internship and it's a great afternoon out for the exhibitions.
The British Library stores a copy of each book that has ever been published. There are temporary exhibitions, a Café and interesting architecture. It makes for a break on a London city tour.
Beautiful place. Proud to be British with a Library like this in the City! The collection of books donated by King George ll are in a stunning display right in the centre of the main entrance. Worth a visit to see this!
