Archives Relocation Programme
The Archives Relocation Programme has been set up to consider if we should relocate the Parliamentary Archives from its current home in Victoria Tower in the Palace of Westminster, to an alternative site.
A relocation would serve to better protect these nationally-important collections, provide greater public access, and promote a greater understanding of Parliament and its history by widening access to its heritage collections.
No decision has yet been taken on a new location for the Archives. Options are being considered and the purpose of the Programme is to identify a preferred one.
The Archives Relocation Programme is not part of the Restoration and Renewal Programme but it is running in parallel to it, and interdependencies are being closely managed.
