Do you give group tours and talks?

We provide group talks, with behind-the-scenes guided tours of our specialist archive preservation and conservation facilities. Come and see how we store treasured historical documents in controlled strongrooms, and observe our conservators in action, using delicate techniques to repair damaged documents.

Our talks cover the story of the Treasure House building, and local history in general, which we tailor, as much as possible, towards the specific interest of your group.

Tours are available to groups and societies and cost £3.00 per person.

We can also come out to your group to give a talk about the work of the archives. This costs £35.00.
