Welcome to the Borthwick Institute for Archives

The Borthwick Institute for Archives is one of the biggest archive respositories outside London. During our 50 year history we have collected archives from all around the world, from the 12th century to the present day. Every year we welcome thousands of visitors to use our archive materials.

In January 2005 we opened to the public in a new, purpose-built building, situated adjacent to the J.B. Morrell Library on the University of York's Heslington campus. This new building was made possible due to a generous grant of 4.4 million by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
