London Metropolitan Archives

London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) is home to an extraordinary range of documents, images, maps, film and books about London. This site offers an insight into the archives, with practical advice on how to research and use them, both at LMA and online.


We run a wide selection of talks, guided tours, film screenings, exhibitions and other events, and you can find out more about these as well as the latest updates from the archives on our news and events page.


LMA is free to use and open to everyone. Whether you’re tracing your family history or researching the history of your neighbourhood, if you’re interested in London or Londoners, LMA is the place to visit.
