RSA Archive: Opening Hours & Access

Fellows and members of the public are welcome to consult documents in person, by appointment, and no charge is made for access.

Visits to the archive are by appointment only, with a minimum of 48 hours' notice required to view archive material. 

Documents are stored in secure and environmentally controlled strong rooms which protect against atmospheric changes, fire and theft, and are available for research in the Archive Reading Room.  The Reading Room is located within the RSA Library.

Appointments can usually be accommodated Wednesday to Friday from 9.30am to 4.45pm.

If you wish to arrange a visit, a weekday House tour or have any further enquiries please contact Head of Archive, Eve Watson by email at or by phone at +44 (0)20 7451 6885.
