Booking a visit to view our documents

New slots for booking will be made available every day.

Each booking is for one person only on a first come, first served basis – you will not be able to bring anyone with you, unless they book a visit themselves or have a duty of care.

There is a reasonable limit of any two types of bookings (standard or bulk) in 28 days. Two bookings cannot be made for the same date.

Please be thoughtful and considerate of others when you book – we may cancel your booking if you exceed our reasonable limit of two bookings in 4 weeks.
