Talks and tours of the Record Office

Book a speaker for your group or arrange a visit to see behind the scenes at the Record Office.


We offer talks to groups and societies on a variety of topics. If you would like to book a speaker contact us as early as possible. We can only commit to a limited number of talks each year and are often booked up well in advance.

A full list of talks and speakers can be supplied on request.

The fee for a talk delivered in West Sussex is £80.00.

Tours of the Record Office

Tours can be arranged for groups on weekdays during the daytime (normally on a Monday), or in the evening. These include a look 'behind the scenes' in the strongrooms, together with an explanation of the facilities in the public searchroom.

Evening tours include a hands-on look at some of the documents, whilst a daytime tour can include a talk or demonstration by the Conservation workshop.

The tour will last between one and two hours.

  • Evening tour: £80.00 per group
  • Daytime tour £40.00 per group
