Bodleian Library 

Well here's a great , unplanned, link to the previous post. London's Globe theatre is mounting a production of Shakespeare's magical story of jealousy, love and redemption, The Winter's Tale, within the idyllic surroundings of the Bodleian Library Quadrangle, Oxford. Oxford is not far from Stratford-upon-Avon and would be a convenient venue on a literary tour. The current performance of The Winter's Tale only runs until Friday 22 August, 2008, with tickets booked at the Oxford Playhouse Box Office but the Oxford Playhouse has many other exciting productions in the pipeline.

The Bodleian Library dates back to 1600 and holds around 12 million volumes, offering over 200,000 titles from their Early English books and their Eighteenth Century collections, online. It is also a partner in Google's Book Search initiative and they are scanning many of their 19th century books.
