The National Archives will be closed from 21 to 27 January 2008

02 January 2008

The National Archives at Kew will be closed to the public from Monday 21 to Sunday 27 January 2008 inclusive.

We will reopen at 09:00 on Monday 28 January 2008

This is to enable us to carry out building works as part of the improvement programme we are implementing at Kew.

Changes to original document services

There will be reduced seating capacity in the document reading rooms from 17 December 2007 until the end of the ongoing improvement programme. Unfortunately this means that we will have to temporarily withdraw the facility for visitors to order original documents in advance of their visit to Kew, from Friday 30 November 2007 until the end of March 2008. Find out more about these arrangements.

The rest of our online services will be available as usual at

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience that these essential building works may cause you.
