Dorset History Centre is the archives service and local studies library for Bournemouth, Christchurch, Dorset and Poole.
We house Dorset's local archives - from council records to personal collections.
Dorset History Centre will re-open on 15 April 2021.
We will be open to the public on a limited basis, with access to original documents only. There will be no access to microfilms or computers. You will need to make an appointment before visiting us, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have carefully risk assessed the public spaces and the procedures necessary to keep both staff and visitors safe.
