Visiting the County Record Office

New opening hours

The record office is now open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9am until 4pm and Saturday mornings from 9am until 12 noon.  

Whilst bookings are no longer required, you can ensure a table space (searchroom only) by booking via Eventbrite. Please see below for details of how we are currently operating. 

The windows at the record office are open to improve ventilation. Please be aware of this and dress accordingly. 

Booking a slot

Slots can be booked through Eventbrite

There are no limits to how many sessions you can have booked at one time, and you can book a morning and afternoon session on the same day if you wish to.

Slots will be available from 9am until 12.30 and 12.30 til 4pm.

You are welcome to arrive anytime between the start and end of your booked session, but please note your booking will end at the advertised time so be ready to leave promptly.

You will be allocated a table on arrival and each table can accommodate up to two people. There is no need to book a second place if there are two people in your party working together and sharing documents.

You can however book two tables if you think you will need space for large maps (please indicate in the booking details). 

Bookings are for searchroom tables, if you only need a microfilm/computer there is no need to book.
