Gladstone’s Library in Hawarden became an internet sensation over the weekend when news and entertainment website Buzzfeed published a video on the Facebook page of its travel arm, Bring Me. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The video had been filmed at Gladstone’s Library five weeks earlier and has, at the time of writing, been watched over 4.6million times, been shared nearly 80,000 times, and received over 14,000 comments. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The video takes the viewer inside the doors of the only residential library in the world, that has 150,000 books and printed items at one end of the building and 26 boutique bedrooms at the other, along with cosy common room and bistro cooking up tasty, homemade food. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Since publication, the Library has received a tangible boost in bookings and enquiries and received coverage in newspapers and websites including the Mail on Sunday. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
