Before you visit

If you want to use a computer or microfilm for looking at newspapers, parish registers, census or GRO indexes, we strongly advise you to book a machine in advance.

For consulting books or archive material, it's not necessary to book a reader's space. If you want to pre-order up to three archival items before you arrive, use our catalogue to tell us the document numbers.
