Tours and Group Visits

Seeing How the BRO Works

Arrangements can be made for small groups to visit and have a tour of the BRO. This is an opportunity to learn at first hand how the office works.

The visit may include an introductory talk, a tour of part of the office, or an exhibition of original documents.  A visit behind the scenes may also be possible.  Please discuss your requirements with the member of staff who is hosting the visit.

The minimum size of group that can be accepted is 10, the maximum 30, depending on staff availability and the nature of the visit.

Arranging a Visit

Requests and arrangements should be made in writing.  Please use the Contact Us link on the left.  Please note that due to demand, visits usually need to be booked several months in advance.

We regret that we are unable to arrange more than one visit for any one group per year.
