Local History and Archives

The Local Studies Service collects documents, material and images relating to the places and parishes that make up the modern London Borough of Hounslow.

Opening times

We are accepting a limited number of visitors, strictly by appointment only. Appointments may only be arranged within the opening hours of the libraries at which we are located: Chiswick and Feltham.

Please understand that under present circumstances it may be necessary to book several weeks in advance.

Some enquiries can be handled without a visit, so please do let us know what it is that you are looking for when you contact us.
