Gloucestershire Archives

Welcome

We gather, keep and share historic archive collections relating to Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire - and local and family history resources relating to Gloucestershire.

The archives are kept at our main Alvin Street site called the Heritage Hub in Gloucester, and you can use them in our public research room, free of charge.

Gloucestershire Archives is a Gloucestershire County Council service.  We also provide an archive service for South Gloucestershire Council.  The geographic area that these councils cover used to be a single county.  Today, we call it the historic county of Gloucestershire.

Our opening times are Tuesday-Friday 9.00am-4.30pm.
