Due to a National Lockdown, Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre is currently closed.

However, we continue to answer telephone and written enquiries and are able to undertake reasonable research on behalf of customers.

Also during this period we are offering some online substitutes for our programme of events here.

We will continue to review government advice and will update residents if further changes need to be made
