Are London post offices open on Jubilee bank holiday weekend 2022? Opening times - will Royal Mail deliver

Some Post Office’s will be operating on different hours this bank holiday weekend

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee has arrived, marking the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II as the UK’s head of state.

With people getting extra two days off this week, we can expect some changes to operating hours of stores, banks and Post Offices.

This may result in some delays to deliveries you may be expecting.

The reduction in Covid-19 test kits being sent by post has dented Royal Mail's revenues.

So, when are the post offices in London open over the Jubilee bank holiday?

Here’s everything you need to know about the operating hours.

When is the Platinum Jubilee?

People across the country will have Thursday 2 June, and Friday 3 June off as a bank holiday to get a kick start on the celebrations.

Will Royal Mail deliver on the Jubilee bank holiday?

Some Post Office branches may be open, but Royal Mail has confirmed that no parcels dropped off will be posted until the Monday after the Jubilee weekend.

There will be no deliveries or collections on Thursday 2 June and Wednesday 3 June.

What are the opening times for Post Offices in London?

To find out where your local post office is you can go on to the official Post Office website and use the branch finder page by simply typing in your postcode or city.

This branch will be operating on the following opening hours:

  • Friday 3 June - Closed
  • Saturday 4 June - 7am - 2pm
  • Sunday 5 June - 11am - 3pm

Are banks, supermarkets and shops open on the Jubilee bank holiday?

With people getting extra two days off this week, we can expect some changes to operating hours of supermarkets and banks as well as Post Offices.

Other high street shops and services may also have changed their opening hours on 2 and 3 June, so it’s worth checking before you travel.

How will Post Offices across the UK be commemorating the Jubilee?

The Post Office rolled out 1.3 million Platinum Jubilee 50p coins earlier this year to commemorate the momentous occasion.

People were excited to get their hands on the collectible.

Postmaster Umesh Sanghani, who has run Dedworth Green Post Office in Windsor for 23 years, alongside his wife Rashmita, spoke on the exciting addition: “We had had many customers coming into our Post Office to check that we are going to get the special 50p coin.”

“They didn’t want to miss out on this souvenir. I am a Royalist. It is amazing that the Queen has reached her 70th anniversary.”
