Heritage Centre in 1890

Welcome to our web site. We hope you will find the site interesting and that you will come and visit the centre when you are in Nuneaton.  It is best to phone if you want to visit outside of our normal times as the centre relies heavily on volunteer staffing.



The centre is always open all day Tuesday and Thursday mornings, every Saturday morning and a Family History advisor is also available at the centre on Tuesday afternoons.

Opening Times
Tuesday 10.00am - 4.00pm
Thursday 10.00am - 1.00pm
Saturday 10.00am - 1.00pm


Email The Heritage Centre now offers help and assistance for those tracing their Family History.  An expert will be on hand  Tuesday afternoons at the Centre to provide guidance for  those having problems progressing their family tree.

The Heritage Centre relies solely on
grants and donations to keep going.  The trustees take no salaries, every penny donated goes to the upkeep of the centre.  If you would care to make a donation, please use the link above
Every penny is gratefully received. Thank you.
