We consider the size and structure of the automorphism groups of a variety of empirical `real-world' networks and find that, in contrast to classical random graph models, many real-world networks are richly symmetric. We relate automorphism group structure to network topology and discuss generic forms of symmetry and their origin in real-world networks.
