If you can’t visit

We understand that not everyone can physically visit The Postal Museum, but we want to make the archive as accessible as possible. Our staff will do their best to answer general queries, and point you in the right direction.

Distance Research

We cannot undertake research on your behalf, however there are independent researchers who can do the work for you. The National Archives have a guide on finding a researcher.
