Awards and Accreditations

The Record Office holds several awards.

The Record Office's holdings are Designated as a Collection of Outstanding Importance. This award reflects the significance of the archives we hold - only a handful of other local authority record offices in the UK have their collections designated in this way.

We were awarded Customer Service Excellence in 2009 as part of Bath and North East Somerset Council's Heritage Services.  We have retained the award since then. To qualify, we had to show that the Record Office delivers an excellent service to users, and that staff understand users’ needs and experiences.
