About Royal Mail

Over 500 years ago in 1516, Henry VIII created the position of “Master of the Posts” with the delivery service now known as Royal Mail.  The service first became available to members of the public in 1635. Throughout the last few hundred years, Royal Mail expanded as a nationwide delivery service for UK post. Developments included mail coaches, mail trains, pillar boxes, a national telephone service and international airmail. Since Britain introduced prepaid postage stamps first, the only stamps without the issuing country’s name on them are British stamps.

Today Royal Mail delivers post six days a week, excluding Sundays, mainly using recognizable branded red delivery vans. Royal Mail operated as either a government department or public service until it eventually became privatized following the Postal Services Act 2011. Royal Mail provides several options for sending and receiving mail, such as first and second class post, redelivery, and PO Boxes. The Royal Mail Group also runs subsidiary services, including Parcelforce Worldwide. Call any of the numbers provided on this page for more information about Royal Mail services.
