National Art Library

The National Art Library is located in Kensington in the west part of London. It is a reference library that is open to the public and provides interesting and important information about the arts from different periods of the United Kingdom’s illustrious and/or infamous history. The National Art Library is actually part of the Victoria and Albert Museum and is located on the first floor. Visitors can sign the guest book and come into the library just to look around. If they want to use the reference materials, they will need to complete a free registration.

  • Enjoy a walk in the John Madejski Garden located just below the National Art Library in London for a quiet reprieve of a busy day.
  • Browse among the National Art Library comics and comic art collection and see such favourites such as the Krazy Kat Arkive.
  • Enjoy a private tour through areas of the museum in London as local narrators tell you the stories that bring history alive, such as the Behind-the-scenes tour at a cost of 220 pounds.

The London Tube is just a five-minute walk to the National Art Library from the South Kensington station and it covers the Piccadilly, Circle, and District lines. You can also walk from the Knightsbridge station within ten minutes. Buses C1, 14, 74, and 414 have stops near the library. If you prefer to be more independent, you can ride a bike since it’s a short distance from the Hyde Park trails. You can also hire a car since it’s not far from Cromwell Road. You can also walk to the National Art Library from many nearby hotels or bed & breakfasts.
