Are Post Offices open on Good Friday and is there post?

Post Office branches are closed on Good Friday, April 10.

To double-check opening times, it is best to look at your local branch online.

These can be found via the Post Office branch finder website.

However, with Boris Johnson deeming Post Offices an "essential service" during the coronavirus pandemic, branches are expected to reopen as usual on Saturday, April 11.

Royal Mail posties deliver letters and parcels six days a week, Monday to Saturday.

But there are no deliveries or collections on bank and public holidays.

This means no deliveries or collections on Good Friday.

For more information on how holidays affect Royal Mail's services, visit its website.

There are around 11,500 Post Office branches around the UK, the majority of which are run independently or on a franchise arrangement.

Apart from bank and public holidays, the Post Office has confirmed that the vast majority will remain open as normal, with only temporary closures due to coronavirus-related staff sickness.

Opening times have always varied by branch, with no set hours across the network.
