The post office business plays a very crucial role in the economy of the United Kingdom. Millions of people and businesses depend on postal services every day to run their daily operations. There are over 11,500 post office branches countrywide, making it one of the UK's biggest retail networks.

The post offices are evenly distributed countrywide, easing communication even in the most isolated places. All you need is a British address with the postcode included and a stamp which can be bought at supermarkets, petrol stations, and many other outlets.

Freestanding Postboxes or wall safes are found in big cities, towns, and even in the most remote villages in the UK. They are painted bright red, and collections are made at least twice a day.
