The long-awaited Easter weekend has arrived along with the first bank holiday of the year, however many businesses and retailers have made changes to their opening times.

The Royal Mail is amongst shops, banks and tips that have altered usual schedules.

With this in mind, you may be wondering if you will receive any post on Good Friday or Easter Sunday and Easter Monday, so we have put together the full Royal Mail schedule for the Easter Weekend.

Does Royal Mail deliver on Easter weekend? Full Schedule

Are Royal Mail working on Good Friday?

What is Good Friday?

Although Good Friday marks the start of the Easter weekend, it’s also the day people commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, days before when he was believed to have been resurrected on Easter Sunday.

Saturday, March 30

Royal Mail's normal weekend delivery and collection services are expected to take place on Saturday (March 30).

Customer Service Points are open for you to collect urgent items if you have received a ‘something for you’ card due to a missed delivery.
