Group Description

At The National Archives we encourage visitors to take photographs of the records they view in our reading rooms. Readers have taken thousands of photos of our documents as part of their research along with pictures all around the Archives' site.

We would love to see the pictures you have taken. So, we set up this group as a place where you can share any photos you took when visiting the archives. You are welcome to add as many photos as you like, including those of the building and grounds, the museum as well as the documents. Please read our terms and conditions below before you post any of your photos.

if it is of a document, that it is in Crown Copyright;
sharing it with The National Archives’ Flickr Group and granting a licence in respect of its use as set out in these Terms will not infringe the copyright or any other rights of any third party;

This licence shall apply for the period during which the photo is posted in the The National Archives’ Flickr Group. If you remove your photo from The National Archives’ Flickr Group, this licence will automatically terminate. If your photo is displayed on The National Archives’ website and/or from The National Archives’ server (for example in a live gallery), your Flickr screen name and the title of the picture will appear with the photo.
