The Wellcome Building, which houses the Wellcome Library, is to undergo a major refurbishment. The Library’s current accommodation at 183 Euston Road is to be upgraded and expanded. While the refurbishment is being carried out, our services and collections will relocate to 210 Euston Road from August 2004 until Spring 2006.

To facilitate the transfer, the Library will be closed to the public for two weeks from 31 July to 15 August 2004, inclusive. We will try to make the move as smooth as possible for our users and apologise in advance for any inconvenience. Readers planning to visit during summer 2004 are strongly advised to contact our Enquiry Line on +44 (0)20 7611 8722 before travelling.
