Group visits

Group visits can be arranged either to Staffordshire Record Office or Stoke-on-Trent City Archives. As part of a group visit, we provide a general talk about the work of the service, the types of documents which we hold and an introduction on how to use the service. In addition there will be a display of documents about your particular area or the subject interest of your group and the archivist will also talk about the documents on display. 

There is a minimum requirement of 12 people for a group visit and the maximum number which we can accommodate is 20. Organisers are asked to confirm the final numbers two days prior to a visit. If the minimum number cannot be met, the archive service reserves the right to cancel a visit at this point.

  • Basic group visit (Mon-Sat): £45
  • Basic group visit plus strongroom tour (Mon-Fri): £50
  • Basic group visit plus strongroom tour and conservation workshop tour (SRO only, by special request, subject to staff availability) (Mon-Fri) : £55
