Facilities for group visits

The Modern Records Centre can host seminars, meetings, exhibitions and other events.

A visit can include an introductory talk and the chance to examine original documents relevant to your area of interest. We can also take groups of less than 10 into one of our strongrooms to give an idea of the extent of our holdings and how we store them.

If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
