King's College London (Maughan Library) :: Visitors' Map of London :: A-Z Maps
King's College London (Maughan Library)The imposing former Public Record Office building is now home to King's College Maughan Library & Information Services Centre. This massive Victorian Gothic edifice was built between 1847 and 1898 to designs by James Pennethorne, a pupil of John Nash to house government records and historical documents comprising the national archives accumulated since the Norman Conquest. The National Archives relocated to modern facilities in Kew in 1997.
The Victorian building includes a round reading room, modelled on that at the British Museum. One of the cells which stored documents has been retained in its original condition, including the massive bookcases with their fire-proof slate shelves.
