What’s on

We have a range of events, from free public talks on records of interest, to training courses for archivists and academics.

You will need to pre-book our events, whether paid or unpaid.

You can catch up on most of our talks via our podcasts and videos.

Discover our full range of events.

Travel through time with our family activities! Our ‘Time Travel Club’ family events are a great way for you and your children to learn and have fun.

Join us on the first Sunday of every month and explore our building, our picturesque gardens and discover a new side to The National Archives.

When taking a break from your research or while you’re here for an event or talk, there is plenty to do and see at The National Archives.
