Tours

We offer tours that offer a behind-the-scenes look of the archives and an insight into how the centre works.

Tours are designed for groups. Individuals can take part in our free behind-the-scenes tours at some of our events such as Local History Day and Adult Learners Week. Please contact us for more information about free tours.

Tours for groups

Our Building Tour lasts approximately 1 hour and takes you around the archive centre and behind the scenes into the state-of-art repositories where we keep our priceless archives.

Our Bespoke Tour of The Archives offers a more in depth visit which lasts 2 hours and gives you the opportunity to:

  • explore behind the scenes of the archive centre
  • learn about archives and local history
  • focus on a particular topic of interest
  • view archives and local history material (up to 10 documents)
