Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Archives runs two public search rooms for the consultation of original material, one at the Town House in the city centre and one at Old Aberdeen House, to the north of the city. Please note that different material is held at each office.

As spaces are limited, all readers are asked to book a seat in advance, particularly those readers coming from a distance or who intend to work in either office for several days or weeks. Please note the following public holidays for 2017 where both offices will be closed:

  • Friday 14 April 2017 (Good Friday)
  • Monday 1 May 2017 (May Day)
  • Monday 25 December 2017 to Tuesday 2 January 2018 inclusive (Christmas and New Year)
