Tired of London, Tired of Life - A website about things to do in London

Do some research at the London Metropolitan Archives

The London Metropolitan Archives are operated by the City of London Corporation and are the main archives for Greater London, apparently containing enough documents to fill nearly fifty miles worth of shelving, dating back to 1067.

The archives are now situated on Northampton Road in Clerkenwell, and are open to everyone Monday - Friday and occasional Saturdays, with late opening on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There are a range of events, which this week include a talk on recording oral family histories and a behind the scenes tour.
