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
