Radcliffe Camera, Oxford: 19 reviews and 30 photos
The Radcliffe Camera - which is the reading room of the Oxford University's Bodleian Library - is probably the most unusual library building I have ever seen (along with the old building of the Bodleian) in terms of architectural excellence.
Built as far back in time as 1748 by James Gibbs as a memorial o the physician Dr. John Radcliffe (1650-1714), it has the classic shape of a Baroque rotunda with all the appropriate decorations.
