Reduced seating capacity in reading rooms at Kew until late spring
Improvement to services provided at Kew, including critical building work will continue until late spring 2008. Unfortunately, there will be reduced seating capacity as well as noise and disruption whilst this continues. You may want to delay planning your visit until the work has been completed.
Changes to original document services
Due to reduced seating capacity we will have to temporarily withdraw the facility for visitors to order original documents in advance of their visit to Kew, until late spring 2008. Bulk ordering will remain available. Find out more about these arrangements.
The rest of our online services will be available as usual at nationalarchives.gov.uk.
We apologise in advance for any inconvenience that these essential building works may cause you.
Transfer of The National Archives' services from the Family Records Centre
All services provided by The National Archives at the Family Records Centre (FRC) are transferring to Kew. These will no longer be available at the FRC after 15 March 2008. The fully integrated services will be available at Kew from 25 March 2008. Access to microfilm/microfiche and computer terminals at Kew will be particularly limited during the period 17-20 March 2008 inclusive.
