Where to find the library

The library is located at: Stationmaster’s House, Station Approach, Leatherhead, KT22 7SQ

The Stationmaster’s House is on the north side of the station opposite the Wates Headquarters building. There is a front entrance and a side entrance which is treated as the main entrance when the Archive and Library is open.…

Arriving By Train:

Leatherhead is served by Southern services between London Victoria and Dorking or Horsham and by South Western Railway services between London Waterloo and Dorking or Guildford (via Wimbledon), resulting in a very frequent service.

Leave the station by the Platform 1 exit via the booking hall, and the RCTS Archive and Library is on your right.

Arriving by car

The post code for use in your Satnav is KT22 7SW, which will direct you to the correct side of the station. The A245, from the A3 at Cobham or from Junction 9 of the M25, passes the station.

There are station car parks on both sides of the station as well as town centre car parks (about 200m away, under the railway bridge).

The station carpark has lower charges on Saturdays and Sundays while the town car parks charge £1 per hour. It depends on the day of your visit and length of stay as to which will be cheaper.


The Stationmaster’s House is a Grade II listed building and , as such, cannot be made fully accessible.…

Wheelchairs can access the ground floor via the side entrance. There is a narrow door between the two ground floor rooms which is usable by narrow wheelchairs or those using Tri-walker walking aids. Steep stairs restrict disabled access to the first floor.

Disabled visitors wishing to view items from the first floor should ask our volunteers to bring them down to the ground floor.

The toilet is not accessible, but there is a unisex accessible toilet on the station (ask the station staff for the key).

LIBRARY CORRESPONDENCE must only be sent to the Chief Archivist:

Andy Davies, 34 Victory Park Road, Addlestone, KT15 2AZ –

Letters or parcels MUST NOT be sent to Leatherhead as there is no facility to collect post sent there.
