The Berkshire Record Office (BRO) is a large glass building situated on the western edge of Reading town centre, on the corner of Coley Avenue and Castle Hill.

Following the Prime Minister's statement on 31st October regarding a national lockdown we will be closed to visitors from 5th November until 2nd December 2020 inclusive.

We will continue to offer remote services, but please do bear with us as we will have fewer staff onsite to process requests so things are likely to take a bit longer.

We hope to reopen on 3rd December 2020.
