Local History Centre

Our centre has a wide range of resources on the history of the borough, including books, maps, illustrations, newspapers, trade directories and archive material.

Islington Local History Centre remains closed and is working on plans for researchers to make personal appointments towards the beginning of September 2020, with visitor and staff safety being our top priority.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding while we organise a safe way for visitors to return and access our collections.
