Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust are opening a Reading Room from the 27th of May 2024, at the Greenwich Archives site at Anchorage Point, SE7.

The Reading Room will be open four consecutive days every month and accessible by pre-booked appointment only. This service will be available for researchers who need to view primary source material from the archive collection. Anyone wishing to research general history, family tree, or newspaper archive information, can access these records free of charge at their local library.

We are expecting a high demand for these services so please get in touch with our team in as much advance as possible to book an appointment (at least one month). Upon submitting your inquiry, please let us know the materials you require so that our Archivist and team of volunteers can assess their availability and condition for your visit.

The opening of the Reading Room is a first-step as the Trust works with the Local Authority on a more suitable longer-term solution for the Archive and the Borough’s Heritage Collection.

Please visit the Heritage page on our website for more information on the Reading Room and to book an appointment or for further information, please contact archive@rght.org.uk.
