The Norfolk Record Office (NRO) collects and preserves unique archives relating to the history of Norfolk and makes them accessible to people in Norfolk and across the world. It includes the Norfolk Sound Archive. The NRO is a joint service of the County and District Councils of Norfolk.
Based at The Archive Centre, next to County Hall, Norwich, the Norfolk Record Office has been assessed by The National Archives as a four-star archive service (the highest available rating). In 2005, the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) granted Designation status to the Record Office’s entire collection.
