The Borough Archive
Contains over 1000 archive collections relating to the London Borough of Croydon, its predecessor bodies and the diverse community it now serves.

Home to the 200 items from the Riesco Collection of Chinese ceramics and Croydon's Roman and Anglo-Saxon collections.

We also run a fun and interactive programme of events, activities & special projects to encourage local people to enjoy and learn from our collections.
