As part of the national Explore Your Archive campaign, join our free tour of the Historic England Archive in Swindon. Join our experts as they take you on a behind the scenes tour of our Archive in Swindon. You’ll have a chance to see the range of material held in the Archive, and will find out how it can be used for research. The tour is an ideal introduction for those interested in local or family history, and anyone with an interest in the historic buildings, landscapes, and social history of England. This event includes a talk about our collections, a visit to the Library and Public Search Room, and a look inside the environmentally-controlled archive store. Please note that the store is kept at a cold temperature, so you will need to bring a coat. Places are limited to 20. The building is largely accessible and we have parking bays for disabled visitors which can be booked by calling 01793 414700. Other parking is available in the Designer Outlet North car park (£1 for up to 5 hours).
