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.
