Local studies & archives
Whether you are tracing the history of a building, undertaking a GCSE project, discovering the history of your family or just interested in the local history of the area where you live, the Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre is the place to start.
The Centre contains over 200,000 items on the history of the borough and we aim to keep anything that helps reflect life in Camden past and present.
Due to technical issues our online catalogue is currently unavailable. We hope to have it accessible again as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
