Institute of Historical Research

Final Phase of the IHR’s Redevelopment Campaign: Invest in the IHR!

The IHR is only a few months from moving back to a newly refurbished space.  We are just £160,000 away from our fundraising campaign target.  Please consider investing in the physical fabric of the IHR to make a unique contribution to the Institute’s future.  Many of your colleagues have done so already and we hope that you will join them.

Easter closure dates

The IHR will be closed for Easter from
Thursday 17 April to Tuesday 22 April inclusive
