Tyne & Wear Archives can be found on the ground floor of Discovery Museum, Blandford Square, Newcastle, NE1 4JA. Please walk, cycle or use public transport when you can to help the environment.
There is limited pay and display parking available directly outside the museum in Blandford Square, but this tends to fill very quickly, especially on busy days such as the school holidays. We advise parking at the Grainger Town multi-storey car park located on Waterloo Street (opposite side of St. James' Boulevard to Discovery Museum).

Head over Redheugh Bridge (A189) following signs for city centre west and continue onto St. James' Boulevard. Discovery Museum is signposted from here.
