There is currently no access to the V&A's study collections at Blythe House, including the archive collections, while they relocate them to the new V&A East Storehouse in Stratford's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. They are unable to consult material in the collections on behalf of enquirers and their enquiry service is therefore very limited. Full access and enquiry services will resume in 2024
