Stamps tell the story comic-strip style in Great Fire of London set of 6.

The Great Fire of London started in the early hours of Sunday 2 Sept 1666: a fire breaks out in bakery of Thomas Farriner in Pudding Lane, London, and over the next few days it spreads through the close-packed wooden houses in the city.

Royal Mail marks the 350th anniversary with a set of 6 stamps in comic-strip style.

In addition to two first class stamps, there are pairs of £1.05 and £1.52 stamps.  You can see them all and read more about the event and the design on our new webpage here.
