British Philatelic Bureau, Edinburgh.
What was in earlier times called "The British Philatelic Bureau", Royal
Mail's mail order section which deals
with customers around the world, supplying them (collectors and
with the full range of philatelic products - stamps, first day covers,
stamp cards, presentation packs, and so on - was for many years
just a few hundred yards from our shop (it has now moved to the west
of Edinburgh). Unfortunately, if you are visiting, there is little
can do at Tallents House - Royal Mail Stamps' offices - there is not a
sales counter or display
area for members of the public.
Royal Mail Stamps and Philately must be one of the busiest, and most
post office philatelic services in the world, but just like so many
others, their increasingly costly and "imaginative" issuing programme
has lost them many customers in recent years.
We used to operate a "British Philatelic Bureau"/"Philatelic Counter"
details can be seen by clicking
