Is the Post Office open on May Bank Holiday? Monday opening times

IF you have ever sent a letter or posted a parcel, you have probably used the Post Office.

Those hoping to post a last minute letter on bank holiday Monday, might struggle as some offices are running reduced hours.

Is the Post Office open during the early May Bank Holiday?

Many Post Offices will be open as normal throughout the May Bank Holiday weekend.

Normally the Post Office is shut on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

This means any deliveries or collections will not be carried out on Sunday, May 1 or Monday, May 2, 2022.

Some branches might be open though so we would recommend checking your local branch’s individual operating hours this weekend before setting out.
