The RBGE Archives are usually open from Monday to Friday between the hours of 10am and 4pm for researchers to visit, but please note that as they are staffed on part time basis, and sometimes closed for holidays and staff development, an appointment is essential.

In response to government advice in relation to Covid-19 (Coronavirus) the RBGE Library and Archives have been closed with staff  working remotely with limited access to the Collections.  However, due to damage to the infrastructure of the Archive Room that occurred during a storm on the 4th July 2021, the RBGE Archives have been secured and removed for their protection for the foreseeable future and there will unfortunately be no access to them until further notice. We apologise for the inconvenience, and are working towards reopening as soon as we can.
