About Us

Who we are

The Record Office is a service provided by Leicestershire County Council in partnership with Leicester City Council and Rutland County Council.

 

What we do

The Record Office exists to preserve and provide access to a wide range of resources which can be used to research the history and culture of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland.

The extensive collections, dating from the Domesday Book to yesterday, include archives, books, newspapers, maps, photographs, videos and sound recordings. The Record Office enables you to access all these resources to find out about your family tree, house history, local study, school, college or university projects, and a host of other topics.

Access to the collections is freely available to everyone and staff are on hand to help you find the information you need.

The building is fully accessible for people with physical disabilities. For more details please see below.
