The Stanley Gibbons Exhibition

Over the years Stanley Gibbons has built up quite a collection of interesting artifacts and won numerous philatelic awards. We have long been considered one of the leading figures within the industry and this exhibition gives us the opportunity to share some of those elements with our visitors and customers from around the world.

The exhibition is located on our first floor and is open to everyone during store opening times (Monday-Friday 9:30-6:00). We will regularly be updating and rotating the exhibits and items on display and will also, on occasion, feature award winning collections and presentations.

Please pay us a visit whenever you are in town.

Over the years our publications and specialists have won a whole host of awards from competitions around the world. One of the more interesting accolades took place in 1993 when The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada awarded Stanley Gibbons the Silver medal for literature.  

We regularly rote our medal displays so pop in and see what gems we are featuring this month

The exhibition also includes a selection form our historica library featuring over 50 years of past auction catalogues and other works of significant philatelic importance.

Visitors are welcome to ask our specialists to view and handle these tomes for reseach purposes or as part of a consultation.

In 1972 Stanley Gibbons took a major step forward in its mission to bring a next generation in the hobby by releasing their first board game ‘Collect’ and in 1988 Stanley Gibbons won the 1988 WHAT TOY? Award for ‘Best Educational Toy’ for our range of Stamp Collector starter packs.

These are both on display alongside our Guinness World Record and a number of other intersting artifacts.

The Stanley Gibbons exhibition is free of charge to all visitors and customers are welcome to explore at their leisure. If you would like further information about any of the displays please contact our team on +44 (0) 207 557 4436
