    We are delighted that the National Archives have offered our members another two 'Behind the Scenes' tours that have proved very popular. The cost now is £11 for a members' only ticket. (The earlier tours were a trial price)

    This is a ticketed event. The National Archives has confirmed that tours are fully accessible, but do require walking fitness, as it is quite a large building even on the flat! Tours last approximately 90 minutes.

    The tour will visit the repositories and reading rooms and view some original and historic public records. If any tour attendees have a particular area of interest amongst the records held at the archives please let us know at the time of booking. The National Archives has offered to check if there are any original records that can be produced for viewing during the tour.
