This is the place to come for any information about the people, places and events in the borough of Hillingdon.
Our collections are accessible through our search room and exhibition space in Uxbridge Library, and include objects, archives, photographs, maps, films, newspapers and books.
Our search room is known as the Hamson Room in memory of Mr. H.T. Hamson,1868-1951, editor of the Middlesex Advertiser and Gazette and Chairman of the Uxbridge Library Committee. He was the inspiration behind the collection of local archives and museum objects since the library opened in 1923.
