Advanced warning: roadworks in Warwick

Please note there will be roadworks in the centre of Warwick between Tuesday 7th May and the end of August 2019 which may affect your journey time. Our car park should remain accessible throughout, though Cape Road will be one way only from 10th June:

Access to the County Record Office will only be available from Northgate, One Way down Cape Road in a northerly direction. Vehicles leaving the record office will have to turn right into Cape Road towards Victoria Street when exiting.
