Iconic Oxford Landmark Celebrated

Queen's College in Oxford is featured in a series of stamps by Royal Mail - celebrating the UK's iconic landmarks.

These stamps take a fresh look at some of the most famous sights in the four countries ranging from the ancient through to the modern, and from the significant to the spectacular.

Other landmarks include Downing Street and Angel of the North. It's part of the special stamp programme which has celebrated events and anniversaries over the last 50 years.

Her Majesty the Queen approves all British stamp designs before they are printed.

Founded 1341 by Robert de Eglesfield, chaplain to Queen Philippa of Hainault, the college is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford.

It is recognised for the classical lines of its buildings, unique among the largely gothic constructions of other Oxford colleges.
