To come in and view records at the City Archives you will need to make an appointment as most of our Collection is stored offsite. To make an appointment simply telephone us, send an email or pop in to arrange a time to visit.


The City Archives responds to requests made to the City under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009, known as GIPAA. To submit a request for information complete the Informal access to information request form.
