Bletchley Park Post Office
Bletchley Park Post Office is famous for its “little pieces of art and history”. These tell the story of Bletchley Park using postage stamps and original artwork. The “Post Office” is an essential part of every visitor’s itinerary. From the wartime sub-post office recreation to the stunning display of first day covers the once secret mailroom delights everyone. Like so much of Bletchley Park its origins are shrouded in secrecy. But it is believed that during World War 2 it was an undercover mailroom with the secret address of PO Box 111 Bletchley.
It has examples of undercover mail sent using that address. In 1947 the GPO opened it as a small sub-post office for what was now a Post Office training centre. In 1994 it became Bletchley Park’s first “gift shop”. The first day and commemorative covers it issues have become very collectable. Early ones are fetching very high prices at auction.
