The Royal Philatelic Society London is seeking a new home in the capital having outgrown its 18th-century premises at 41 Devonshire Place in the Marylebone area of London.

The Royal Philatelic Society London is seeking a new home in the capital having outgrown its 18th-century premises at 41 Devonshire Place in the Marylebone area of London. The Royal has been based at 41 Devonshire Place since 1925.

 A spokesperson for the Society said: ‘This is a wonderful heritage building that dates from the 1790s. However, as the Society grows, so the need has arisen to find more suitable premises. In recent years the Royal has expanded in terms of membership, attendance at meetings and its collections, and continues to do so, meaning that No. 41 is no longer fit for purpose.’

The Council of the Royal has looked long and hard at ways of renovating its much-loved headquarters, but no affordable scheme has been identified that fulfils all of the present and future needs.

The current President, Frank Walton, RDP FRPSL, said: ‘Although every member has very fond memories and attachments to our Marylebone home, the level of support for the decision to seek a new home has been overwhelming.’‚Äč
