Cambridgeshire Archives Service holds a wealth of unique historic records and other resources relating to Cambridgeshire, the former counties of Huntingdonshire and the Isle of Ely and their communities.

In order to minimise the risk of COVID-19, you may prefer not to visit us but to use our Historical Research Service (HRS) or digitisation service instead.

Visiting is strictly by appointment only.

We updated our opening hours on 15 November - see visit our archives webpage for more details.
