Behind the Scenes Tour

Go behind the scenes at Hampshire Record Office.

SOLD OUT. Another tour has now been arranged on 16 November. Join us and discover what happens behind the scenes inside Hampshire Record Office. Be guided around the building by an archivist who will explain how we preserve and make accessible Hampshire's documentary heritage. Get a chance to see some of our favourite rarely seen documents. Learn about the hazards that face paper documents and find out how we carefully bring them back to life. See the strongrooms which contain 8 miles of archives and store over 1,000 years of Hampshire's history. Get comfy in our 80 seat cinema and watch some archival film from the Wessex Film and Sound Archive which holds 38,000 audio-visual items. Find out about the challenges of a constantly changing digital world and how we continue to preserve and make accessible your heritage. Photograph credit Mike Hall.
