The Royal Mail Archive is open Monday to Friday, and on selected Saturdays. We are closed on all public holidays.
Regular Opening Times
Monday to Wednesday - 10.00am - 5.00pm
Thursday - 10.00am - 7.00pm
Friday - 10.00am - 5.00pm
Closure on Monday 7 April
The Search Room is closed on Monday 7th April for essential maintenance work.
Early closing Thursday 17 April
On Thursday 17 April (Maundy Thursday) the Search Room will close at 5pm. This is in line with our past practice.
Likely disruption from 17 March
Essential maintenance work being done on Freeling House’s external shutters will likely have an impact on anyone visiting the Archive that week. Although we hope it will be minimal, please bear this in mind when planning a visit.
Our annual stocktake will take place 12-23 May 2014 inclusive and the Royal Mail Archive Search Room will be closed throughout.
The Archive is open on the second Saturday of every month. However, the Archive will be closed the Mondays after the open Saturdays.
