* Please note that if you wish to use documents on Saturday afternoon it is strongly recommended to pre-order these before 1 pm the same Saturday. This is due to our having fewer staff working Saturday afternoons. Anyone ordering documents after 1 pm does so at their own risk and should be aware that we cannot guarantee to produce them on the same day. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

ANNUAL OPEN DAY: SATURDAY 27 OCTOBER. Please note normal public service and the production of documents for research is suspended. Apologies for any inconvenience.

CLOSURE WEEK: Please note we will be closed to the public between Sunday 2 and Monday 10 of December 2018. This is so we can undertake essential background work on our collections - keep an eye on our social media accounts to find out what we get up to. We will re-open as normal on Tuesday 11 December 2018.
