West Glamorgan Archive Service collects documents, maps, photographs, film and sound recordings relating to all aspects of the history of Swansea and Neath Port Talbot and makes them available for visitors and researchers in our facilities in Swansea Civic Centre.

Do you have ancestors who came from our area and would like to do some family history research during your visit to Swansea Bay?
We have friendly and welcoming staff on hand to help you.

Looking for a range of local books, cards and souvenirs to take home with you? We have a shop with an enticing range of items for those who love history, most of which are not on sale anywhere else in Swansea.

West Glamorgan Archive Service is a joint service for the Councils of the City and County of Swansea and Neath Port Talbot County Borough. We also have a branch at Neath Mechanics Institute, Church Place, Neath (see our website for more details).
