North Yorkshire County Record Office

Visiting the Record Office

  • Please make an appointment before visiting. At present, we can only accommodate a limited number of visitors at any one time and may not be able to accommodate visitors arriving without an appointment. 
  • Please book a place even if you only want to consult microfilm or printed catalogues, or use the People’s Network computer. 
  • Each booking is for one person only.  If you wish to bring someone with you, please let us know and we will reserve another place for them.
  • We recommend that you order original documents in advance where possible but we will accept additional document requests during your visit.
  • Staff and volunteers will continue to wear face coverings for now and we would encourage our visitors to do the same.
