We have thousands of documents, photographs, maps and more to help with your research.
Due to our ongoing work to prepare the archives for relocation to The Box, we regret that some of our photographic collections are no longer available to view in our search room. Where a collection has been digitised, the digital images of this material will still be available to use. If you are planning to undertake any research involving photographic material please contact us and we can advise you on the availability of specific items.
As our work on the preparations for The Box increases throughout 2019, we will also be introducing some changes to our opening hours.
From Tuesday 2 April the Plymouth and West Devon Record Office will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays and closed on Wednesdays and Fridays.
The Record Office will close at the end of Thursday 29 August for the move to The Box. The archive service will resume as normal at The Box in April 2020. Find out more about our opening hours using the link at the bottom of this page.
