You can view an early printing of Shakespeare's work 
and original handwritten lyrics by The Beatles
in the 'Treasures Room' at the British Library's
St Pancras location (London)

The world's largest library in terms of items,
this library is primarily used for research

Famous documents such as the Magna Carta (on view)
as well as original writings by Da Vinci (on view), Darwin,
and countless others are housed there

With most books out of view,
you can register for a 'reader pass' to enter a reading room and request a book
but it will take an hour to two days for your item to be retrieved

When I asked if my kids could see any children's books
the nice man laughed
and said 'ironically, they need to be 18 years old to see them here'

I'm curious what you think is 'the best of Britain'?
