Special DeliveryTM Next Day will continue to operate into and out of London during the Games period. Royal Mail expects to be able to deliver items to some parts of London by 1.00pm. However, transport restrictions and extended travel times mean Royal Mail cannot guarantee to do this for all items in all areas throughout the Games period. Given these circumstances, items due for delivery in London will be guaranteed for next day delivery rather than by 1.00pm with immediate effect until 17th September. The change only affects items due for delivery in London postcode areas: E, EC, N, NW, SE, SW, W and WC. This means items posted to these postcode areas will not be guaranteed by 1.00pm. Items due for delivery in other parts of the UK will still be guaranteed for delivery by 1.00pm the next working day.
Special DeliveryTM 9:00am: Due to additional restrictions and the extended times for moving mail around the capital, Royal Mail cannot guarantee delivery of items by 9.00am in London.This affects items due for delivery in the E, EC, W, WC, N, NW, SW and SE London postcode areas with immediate effect until 17th September. This means items posted to these postcode areas will not be guaranteed by 9.00am. Customers have the option to use Special DeliveryTM Next Day for guaranteed next day delivery in London instead.The Special DeliveryTM 9:00am service will continue to be available for delivery in other parts of the UK.
