Parliamentary Archives

The Parliamentary Archives search room is now closed whilst the collections are being relocated. Relocation is due to be complete by June 2025 and access to the collection will be restored, in its new home at The National Archives in Kew, as soon as possible. At present the safe transfer of the collection is the priority of the Archives Relocation Programme and The National Archives to ensure the long term preservation and access to the records in the future. Our enquiry service is still open until September. We will continue to answer Freedom of Information requests and provide an information and records management service for both Houses of Parliament.


Search our online catalogue, access digital content, and plan your visit on the Parliamentary Archives website.
