Local Archives and Libraries

There are no travel fees, if visits are required to Surrey History Centre, Woking; The National Archives, Richmond; The Keep (East Sussex Record Office), Brighton;  West Sussex Record Office, Chichester; and Canterbury Cathedral Archives.

Local museum and other smaller archive visits within Surrey, East and West Sussex, can also be arranged. A travel fee may be charged depending on their location, as a guide anything outside the travelling distance to the archives above will likely attract a travel fee.
