Tyne & Wear Archives Service

Tyne & Wear Archives Service has now merged with Tyne and Wear Museums to create a joint service.

Preserving the Past for the Future

Tyne & Wear Archives Service is the record office for the cities and metropolitan districts of Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland, Gateshead, South Tyneside and North Tyneside. We preserve documents relating to the area from the 12th to the 21st century, and the service is free for everyone to use.
