British Postal Museum & Archive

 
British Postal Museum & Archive hotels title=The British Postal Museum Archive (BMPA) office and Royal Mail Archive is found within the large Mount Pleasant Sorting Office complex in Farringdon. Formed in 2004 as a successor to the old National Postal Museum which closed in 1998, the BMPA looks after the Royal Mail Archive, home to world's greatest collection of British stamps. They hold copies of every stamp ever issued by Royal Mail, as well as artwork for 'unadopted' designs - that were never printed for public cirulation. Important philatelic records within the archive include correspondence volumes and private day books from the printers, De La Rue; the Dendy Marshall Collection; and the Phillips Collection. The last of these comes from Reginald M Phillips who donated his award-winning collection to the nation in 1965 (now available online) which includes the world's first Penny Black first day cover, issued in 1840. The BPMA is not a 'traditional' museum however you can visit the Royal Mail Archive for research purposes five days a week. They also have a small display area in the Search Room which hosts regular free philatelic exhibitions - also available online at www.postalheritage.org.uk. The large museum collection is currently in storage and can be seen by the public on special open days, afternoons and evenings at the Museum Store in Essex.
