Visiting NDFHS

NDFHS is located on the 7th  Floor of Percy House and can easily be reached by lift. Percy House is  located on the west side of Percy Street between Gallowgate and Leazes Park Road and opposite Eldon Square Shopping centre.

It is only a few minutes walk away from a Metro Station (St James, Monument, or Haymarket) or Bus Station (Eldon Square, or Haymarket).

The Research Centre is open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 4 pm. We close over Easter and Christmas and the New Year. The Centre is run by volunteers who are happy to welcome you and show you round the premises. They will also assist you to make use of our resources but please don’t expect our volunteers to do your research for you.

If you wish to use a computer or fiche reader it is advisable to telephone and book in advance to avoid disappointment.

There are facilities for making tea or coffee and you are welcome to bring something to eat in the Refreshment area.

Health and Safety: please sign in when you arrive, and sign out when you leave. There is a weekly fire-alarm test at 0920 on every Tuesday.

Opening Hours

Monday – Thurs 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.  Friday 10.00 am to 1pm.
