In view of current Covid-19 guidelines, Bristol Archives is currently offering only a limited service and is not open to the public..
They can still answer enquiries/do copy orders etc. However the turnaround time on enquiries is going to be lengthened further, so please bear this in mind if you’re waiting for a response.
Reopening is currently planned for Monday 17th May 2021, after which a reduced sevice will be offered, with public access available only on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Space will be limited, and pre-booking essential. Please see the Bristol Archives website (https://www.bristolmuseums.org.uk/bristol-archives/) for details.
It is hoped to reopen the BAFHS Research Room from Wednesday 2nd June onwards. From that date, the Research Room will be open on Monday afternoons and Wednesday mornings, and prior booking will be required. See this website for further information as it becomes available.
Normal opening hours for both Bristol Archives and the BAFHS Research Room will be restored in due course.
