6 August 2009
From Sunday, 16 August 2009, the Bodleian will be open to visitors on Sundays, from 11am to 5pm.
Tourists will be able to visit the Divinity School, the Exhibition Room and the Shop, and will also be able to take an audio tour.
Tours led by guides will be introduced at a later date.
The site will operate as a visitor destination only, and the reading rooms will not be open. Sunday opening will be reviewed after 12 months and, if successful, may be implemented permanently.
