The Poetry Library
Not much use if you are only visiting London for a few
days, but if you are moving here to live it's an invaluable resource for poetry lovers. It's dedicated to poetry from
1912 onwards and it's free to join. They organise lots
of events and workshops including stuff for children.
They have both reference and lending libraries.
