Edinburgh City Archives

Visit the search room

Due to post COVID-19 staff leave arrangements, the Archives search room will be closed from Tuesday 18 July for two weeks. We will re-open on Tuesday 2 August at 10am. Apologies for any inconceniance this may cause.

We are unlikely to be able to provide access to the search room unless you have booked a space at least a week in advance.

Email Archives to book a space.

You will be assigned a seat for the duration of your visit and we ask that you do not use hand sanitiser during your visit to the search room as this can damage the records. There will be access to hand washing facilities on site.
