Gladstone’s Library in Hawarden, Flintshire was opened in 1902 and resulted from a major bequest by former Prime Minister, W. E. Gladstone. Its residential wing was opened in 1906 and has been beautifully updated in recent years. The Library provides opportunity for study and quiet reflection as well as a programme of courses and events. It is the home of the archives of British crime writing; the records of the CWA and the Detection Club are kept there. Find out more about Gladstone’s Library here.
