Can I see the original newspapers at the British Library?

The British Library offers public access to its newspaper collections through reading rooms at St Pancras, London and Boston Spa, Yorkshire, England.

At the moment, the British Library is in the middle of a huge project to move its entire collection of newspapers and periodicals from London to Yorkshire, so not all newspapers are available to order. Microfilm versions of the most popular newspapers are available at both sites.

Find out more about the move at the British Library's website.
