Library and Archive

The Library at Pall Mall is one of the best resourced motoring libraries in the country.

It is open from Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 5.00pm. Staff are available to assist members with any enquiry.

Club members are welcome to use their own laptop (on silent mode) in the library. It is recommended currently that a workstation be booked in advance to ensure availability at the time of visit.

Bookings can be made either by emailing heritage@royalautomobileclub.co.uk or by calling 020 7747 3398.

Non-members may be invited to use the library for the purpose of research (by prior appointment only).

Club Archive

A visit to the Club archive in Westminster City Archives, by members and non-members, can be arranged by prior appointment only. For further information please email heritage@royalautomobileclub.co.uk.

Search the Collections

The heritage catalogue draws together the collections of both the Library and the Archive collections in a single portal.  Those collections comprise books, periodicals, paintings, trophies, badges, and other ephemera, ranging for example, from personal narratives of prominent members and fine architectural drawings of the Pall Mall and Woodcote Park clubhouses to documentation of the ground-breaking 1000 Miles Trial and the historic Tourist Trophy race.
