Christmas & New Year opening hours

Good news! The Archives will remain open until 4.30 pm on Thursday 21 December 2017 when we will close for the Christmas break. We will re-open at 9.00 am on Tuesday 2nd January 2018.

We will be closing for two weeks to move into the newly refurbished Heritage Hub in the new year. We will announce the firm dates as soon as we have them.

Serving South Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire Archives collects, preserves and makes accessible archives relating to the historic county of Gloucestershire. This is the area now administered by South Gloucestershire Council and Gloucestershire County Council.

We work in partnership with South Gloucestershire Council to ensure the rich archive resources can:

  • help us understand national and international history see Our collections
  • help you to find out about your family or local history
  • inspire people to use the collections for learning and enjoyment see Learning for all
