Reduced seating capacity at the National Archives in Kew

The National Archives have announced that due to ongoing major building works at the site, seating capacity has now been temporarily reduced until late spring 2008. They advise that due to ongoing noise problems and disruption to services, it may be worth postponing a visit until the work is completed. As seating is now restricted, the facility to order up documents prior to a visit has also been temporarily withdrawn, though bulk ordering of documents is still possible.

In addition, the complete closure of the Family Records Centre from March 15th has also been confirmed, with all services moving to the National Archives, as previously announced. The services previously offered at the FRC should resume on March 25th at Kew.
