Planning your visit to North Lanarkshire Archives

North Lanarkshire Heritage CentreWhen you visit

Archives are unique and irreplaceable and have to be preserved for the future. When you visit the Archives we will ask you:

  • to handle the documents with care;
  • to always use a pencil when making notes; and
  • not to eat or drink in the search room.


We have a small seating area with a vending machine and coffee/tea maker for visitors to use.


Lifts to all floors, accessible WC on the ground floor, induction loop, and free car parking at the rear of the building with three spaces for blue badge holders. If you have a query about access please call 01698 274590 or email
