Love the two-story library, all the marble above the fireplace. Love the leather wing back chairs. It's all over the top but stunning to look at.

Inside Britain's most incredible libraries

One of the oldest libraries at the heart of Oxford's historic University is Duke Humfrey's Library in the Bodleian, which held the primary function as a reading room for maps, music and pre-1641 rare books until 2015

I love old libraries, everyone of my senses are on alert - the sounds of quiet, the sights, the smells, the feel of the book, the page, the parchment, the taste in the air. If you don't know what I speak of, then you have not experienced a bit of heaven on Earth
