The Archives Centre began by collecting the papers of Winston Churchill and other contemporaries and has grown to become an important resource for the study of modern history from the late nineteenth century to the present day. Our collections encompass the personal papers of individuals who made and remade British domestic politics and international relations, advanced scientific knowledge, and who observed or transformed society, economics and culture. These materials record key events and trends in the history of Britain and beyond. The Centre continues to collect.

The Archives Centre has been awarded Accreditation by The National Archives and the Churchill Papers have been entered on the UNESCO International Register of the Memory of the World.
