Welcome to the Spanish Study Circle

Whether you are a complete novice or an expert collector of Spanish Philately we hope to cater for everyone - if we don't know perhaps you could fill in the gaps! We are based in the UK but have a worldwide membership. 

The Spanish Study Circle was founded in 1956 in London to promote the study of the stamps and postal history of Spain and its former colonies. In 2003 the Study Circle was elected to membership of the Spanish Academy of Philately.
