This beautiful cover features eight influential Prime Minister stamps alongside a No. 10 Downing Street gold blocking which stands out as the home and offices of British Prime Ministers since 1735. It has been cancelled with a specially designed 10 Downing Street, Westminster postmark on the first day of issue.

 Over the last 200 years there have been over 50 men and 1 woman who have lived behind this famous door which vies with the White House as being the most important political building anywhere in the world in the modern era.

The most important decisions affecting Britain for the last 275 years have been taken behind its iconic black door and these people have shaped Britain into what we know today.

In the 20th century alone, the First and Second World Wars were directed from within Number 10, as were the key decisions about the end of the empire, the building of the British nuclear bomb, the handling of economic crises from the Great Depression in 1929 to the great recession of today, and the building up of the welfare state.

Some of the most famous political figures of modern history have lived and worked in Number 10, including Robert Walpole who was the first British Prime Minister, Pitt the Younger, Charles Grey, Benjamin Disraeli, William Gladstone, David Lloyd George, Winston Churchill, Clement Atlee, Harold Wilson and Margaret Thatcher.

Number 10 is also home to the Cabinet Office where ministers meet regularly to decide policy.

The building is much larger than it appears from its frontage. The hall with the chequered floor immediately behind the front door leads on to a warren of rooms and staircases. The house in Downing Street was joined to a more spacious and elegant building behind it in the early 18th century. Number 10 has also spread itself out to the left of the front door, and has taken over much of 12 Downing Street, which is accessed by a corridor that runs through 11 Downing Street - the official residence of the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

 The 8 Prime Ministers who are featured on these special stamps are:

  • William Pitt the Younger: The youngest Prime Minister at the age of 24 years old and 205 days
  • Charles Grey: Played a crucial role in the Great Reform Act of 1832
  • Sir Robert Peel: Famously founded the Metropolitan Police Force
  • William Gladstone: Led the country on 4 separate occasions
  • Sir Winston Churchill: Leader of the country for most of World War Two. Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
  • Clement Attlee: The longest serving leader of the Labour Party for 20 years from 1935 to 1955
  • Harold Wilson: The only Prime Minister in the modern era to have won 4 general elections
  • Margaret Thatcher: The longest serving Prime Minister for over 150 years and the first female to lead the country
