I have found items I would like to see: how do I access them?

Everyone is welcome to visit the Reading Rooms at Tate Britain to see Tate Archive and Public Records items; advanced appointments and registration are required.
Please email the Reading Rooms: reading.rooms@tate.org.uk.

We will supply details about visiting, including our free registration process for new readers and how to request items in advance of your visit. Our opening hours are Monday to Thursday 11AM to 5PM.

I cannot visit: can you provide copies of items?

We offer a ‘scan and send’ service for small quantities of information from the Archive and Public Records collections. Please email the Reading Rooms: reading.rooms@tate.org.uk.

This service is available for those undertaking non-commercial research and private study only.
The onward use – e.g. publication or wider dissemination of the document will require express copyright clearance, for which the researcher is solely responsible. This service will be provided free of charge, at the current time.
