Post Office and Museum

Caldey Island Post Office and Museum

Caldey Post Office was built in c1913, shortly after the Monastery was completed. Its unusual design, created by John Coates Carter, blends well with the extravagant architecture of the Abbey buildings. It was purpose built as a post office and in earlier years also served as a general store.


It is still a working sub-post office offering all the normal services to visitors and islanders. Caldey commemorative stamps can be purchased and used in addition to normal postage to add a distinctive touch to visitors' postcards.
