New identification requirements when visiting the reading rooms at The National Archives

20 May 2008

If you wish to look at original documents when visiting The National Archives, you will need a Reader's Ticket.  If this is your first visit (or if you need to renew your Reader's Ticket), please make sure you bring two forms of identification with you - one proof of identity with a signature (such as a passport or bank card) and the other a proof of address (such as a driving licence or recent utility bill).

Our reader registration pages contain a full list of acceptable identification.

Many of our most popular records are now available online or on microfilm/fiche in the new Open Reading Room. You do not need a Reader's Ticket to use the facilities in this area.
