Suffolk Record Office logo

The Suffolk Record Office maintains a historical record of Suffolk and its people.

We look after original documents obtained from many different sources. We also store published works like histories, poetry and newspapers.

CARN tickets

We will continue to accept existing CARN tickets as long as they are still in date or valid and have not expired.

We are not issuing new CARN tickets as the national system ended on 30 November 2018. We are issuing Suffolk Record Office tickets instead.
