Re-Opening

The Richard Burton Archives is re-opening from 3rd August 2021.

Due to current Welsh Government and Swansea University guidance, our library and archive services are currently available to current Swansea University staff and students only.

Our opening hours will be as follows:

Thursday 10am – 12.30pm and 1.30pm – 4pm

A maximum of 2 researchers will be admitted at a time and there will be a requirement to pre-book a search room space and order documents by 3pm on the Thursday the week before your visit. We ask all researchers to contact us at archives@swansea.ac.uk or 01792 295021 prior to your visit to discuss your requirements.

We will still be operating an enquiry service.
