The Archive is open from 10:00am until 2:00pm Tuesday through to Friday each week except for Christmas and New Year weeks. Exceptional closures will be noted here and on our Facebook Page.
If you are coming to research a specific topic, particularly if you are travelling, please make contact in advance so that our volunteers can prepare for your visit. Some of the records are held off-site and will not be available without advance notice.
Following the Covid 19 lockdown that started in January 2021, St Ives Archive will re-open to the public from Tuesday 13 April. Visitors will be welcome by appointment only, so please book your visit in advance to help us manage secure social distancing.
