The sandy-gold Radcliffe Camera is the quintessential Oxford landmark and undoubtedly one of the city’s most photographed buildings. This beautiful circular, columned library and reading room, filled with natural light and focused on the humanities, was built between 1737 and 1749 in grand Palladian style, and has Britain’s third-largest dome. The only way to see the interior is to join an extended 1½-hour tour (£14) of the Bodleian Library .
