Building works affecting Gloucestershire Archives

We currently have builders on site. Before your visit, please check the latest information about opening hours and parking. You will need to order your documents before you visit.

We will be closed from Monday 11th December 2017, reopening as Gloucestershire Archives at the Heritage Hub on Tuesday 2nd January 2018. During this time  we will be relocating to the remodelled public space. We hope to keep disruption to our customers at a minimum as this is our least busy time of the year. We look forward to welcoming you to the Heritage Hub in the New Year

Class or group visit

How to get the most out of a group visit to the archives.

We offer a tour of our public research room (where people can look at historic documents) and strongrooms (where our collections are stored in climate controlled conditions).

Tours are open to people of all ages and scheduled as part of our events programme.  They are also offered to learning organizations and community groups as a bookable visit.  Groups can take advantage of an additional document handling session to look at archive material that their members would find interesting.

Visiting school groups can also opt for taught sessions by Archives staff and/or an accompanying tour of Gloucester Rugby Club's Kingsholm stadium, which is within easy walking distance.  The joint tour complements our Gloucester Rugby Heritage Learning ZoneOpenindow resources for primary and secondary schools.

Please contact us to arrange a visit.  Also, have a look at the risk assessment.
