Whenever you come to Edinburgh, Tom Brown's Stamp Shop is the place to visit for any of your collecting interests. Our main business is obviously connected with stamp collecting, and we cater for all levels, from junior collections through to the advanced philatelist. Most of the better stamps and covers that we handle are sold through our regular public auctions, but there are many items of interest spread throughout our general worldwide stock too.

Other forms of collectables held in stock and auctioned include: Postcards, Cigarette Cards, Banknotes, Coins, Medals, Die-cast & Tin-Plate Toys and Vehicles, Model Railways, Märklin H-O & Z gauge Trains, and many other odd bits and pieces too numerous to mention!

The shop is located about a mile South-West from the West end of Princes Street and can be a pleasant walk on a fine day, with many sights on the way. It can be as short as fifteen minutes if you're 'stepping out' and not looking in the shop windows on the way past! If walking isn't your thing, or it's a typically cold, wet Edinburgh day, the number 10 bus (caught from the Gardens side of Princes Street) or the number 27 (caught outside the Royal Scottish Academy on the Mound) will both drop you off just around the corner from the shop. Just ask to be let off the bus at "Granville Terrace / Merchiston Park". If travelling by car, there is plenty of parking in the area; although sometimes a trip around the block is needed to find a space!

Opening Hours: Thursday to Saturday 10:30 - 5:00 (closed Monday to Wednesday)

Please always phone before travelling any distance to ensure that we're open and that you get the welcome you deserve & expect!
