Welcome to the Royal Philatelic Society London, the oldest philatelic Society in the world, established in 1869 as The Philatelic Society, London.
The home of philatelic excellence, expertise and friendship.
"The Royal", as we are universally known, is committed to moving with the times.
Our website has two aims:
We have over 1000 overseas members, almost 900 members in the United Kingdom, and our libraries, collections and archives go back to the beginning of the postage stamp and beyond.
We welcome new members who share our aims and objectives, from wherever in the world they may be. We hope that you find much of value here, and of course there is more for members than for the casual user.
We welcome feedback, comment and suggestions, positive, or less so. If you wish to join the Society, or simply to know more about the benefits of membership, please click here.
With best wishes, Brian Trotter, President
