OXFORD East MP Andrew Smith re-opened the city’s central post office.
It is part of the Post Office’s programme of refurbishment which is being rolled out across the country.
Mr Smith said at Friday’s opening: “I was very impressed. I think it is very well laid out.
“I am sure it will give overall a better service and one which is more satisfactory for the customers.”
The branch, in St Aldate’s, has been redesigned with open-plan counters, self-service kiosks and a private room for consultations on financial services.
It was built between 1878 and 1880.
