Visit our Library and Archive

Easily accessible from a variety of tube stations and bus routes, our Research Hub is in the heart of the historic canal landscape of North London. Visit us to access our library, archival material, and computers with access to a wide range of genealogical sites.

We're also an established FamilySearch Affiliate Library and offer a fantastic, friendly space for exploring your family history in the company of fellow genealogists and our expert staff.

Our Research Hub encompasses our library, archive, and computers with access to online subscription sites. You are welcome to visit at any time during our opening hours; however, not all of our collections are kept on-site, so to guarantee access to the material you need or to reserve a computer, please book in advance.

All collection items need to be ordered at least one week prior to your visit.
We're open to all members and to non-members for £20 for a day pass.
