The National Archives is open to all, offering a range of activities and spaces to enjoy and our reading rooms for research.
Our site in Kew has a bookshop and restaurant, set in beautiful grounds just a five-minute walk from the River Thames. Plan your visit, or find out about our events, exhibitions or talks.
Please note: the Keeper’s Gallery is closed until April 2019 while we install a new exhibition on the Cold War.
We have introduced new charges in our visitor car park: find out more.
