Centre Tours and Open Days

There are usually one or more Tours or Open Days for individual researchers at The Centre for Heritage and Family History in each quarter. All include time and opportunity for private research. A click on the Open Day Programme tab in the Main menu (on the left) will tell you if any tours are planned in the next few weeks. No need to book – just turn up.

Private tours of the Centre for groups are welcomed too — but by prior arrangement only. These can be tailored to include a talk on family history research, refreshments and the opportunity to use the resources of the society’s research room.
