The National Archives has now re-opened to offer a limited service to visitors who need access to our collection of original documents for their research. Visitors will be required to book their visit and order their documents in advance. Many of our staff are working from home but we are still providing a service and point of contact for the archive sector.
Here you can find our statements relating to Archive Service Accreditation, Places of Deposit, collections safety and our funding programmes. We have also compiled a list of useful resources from other organisations and created a re-opening checklist of areas for consideration as the archives sector moves towards re-establishing access to collections.
