* UPDATED 15 September 2021 *
The Reading Room of The Rothschild Archive London is open for researcher bookings. We continue to adhere to national pandemic guidance and advice, and the information given here may be subject to revision as and if, circumstances change.
Registered members of the Rothschild Research Forum may book an appointment with us. We will endeavour to accommodate all requests for appointments, subject to staff availability.
Making a research visit booking
Researchers may request an appointment by emailing us here. Our usual opening times are 10 am to 4.15 pm.
Our collections are stored off-site and it to avoid disappointment, it would be helpful if researchers could supply as much information as they are able to about the documents they wish to request and the nature of their research interest, well in advance of a pre-booked visit.
Researchers intending to visit should note that some COVID-19 precautionary measures remain in place:
- You should not attend in person if you: a. Have been in direct contact with anyone who has tested positive for the virus in the last 10 days; b. Display the symptoms of the COVID-19 virus;
- Track & Trace: The Rothschild Archive will need to store your name and contact number for 21 days for track and trace purposes; you are asked to inform us if you test positive for Covid-19 (within 10 days) after visiting us;
- Your temperature will be tested upon arrival at New Court;
- Masks: please note that New Court is considered ‘COVID Secure’ and staff and visitors are not obliged to wear a mask within the New Court building but you may do so if you wish.
