London (2005)
 
Welcome to the London, UK, Branch of the OMRS.

We meet on the second Tuesday of every odd numbered month in the London premises of Spink, the world famous dealers and auctioneers at Spink, 69 Southampton Row, Bloomsbury, London, WC1B 4ET
 
We start to gather at 18:00 for tea and biscuits and to exchange stories of new research, new purchases, and outrageous medal prices! This leads us nicely into a relaxed 18:30 meeting start time, usually concluding by 20:30. We usually adjourn post meeting for drinks afterwards at 'The Queen's Larder', 1 Queen's Square, Bloomsbury, London, WC1N 3AR
 
There is no car parking at Spink's premises but the area is well served by bus and tube links, the nearest station being Russell Square.
