At The National Archives, ensuring that our building, services and holdings are accessible for all our visitors is important to us. We aim to create an environment that makes you feel welcome.
We provide full access to all our public areas; there is a lift to upper floors and the building is wheelchair-friendly. We also have a range of facilities in our reading rooms to help you with your research.
Please contact us before your visit if you have any queries about accessibility.
