Surrey History Centre opening hours

Normal opening hours

  • Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday: 9.30am to 5pm
  • Wednesday: 10.15am to 5pm
  • Thursday: 9.30am to 5pm

The Centre is closed on Sundays and Bank Holiday weekends (including Saturdays).

You will need a Surrey County libraries ticket or a County Archive Research Network (CARN) card to use our collections. If you do not have either of these, you will need to bring something official as proof of ID and address, such as a driving licence or bank statement.

Amendment to Saturday opening times and document orders

Due to a reduction in our public services team, the search room now closes for lunch between 12.30pm and 1pm on Saturdays. The foyer, foyer computers and public refreshment area will remain open.

Please note that from 6 July 2019, items required on a Saturday from our strongrooms (archives and local studies material) will need to be pre-ordered. Saturday orders should reach us by 12 noon on Fridays. We apologise for any inconvenience that this change in our public service will cause.

Annual stocktaking

Surrey History Centre will be closed for stocktaking from Monday 2 December until Monday 16 December. We will re-open Tuesday 17 December at 9.30am. This will enable us to improve our finding aids and your access to our collections.
