Royal Mail

Royal Mail, a London based delivery company, can trace its roots back 500 years to the reign of Henry VIII. The king knighted Brian Tuke as Master of Posts thus laying the groundwork for what today is Royal Mail. Tuke created the first formal postal network through the kingdom.

The company touts that it is the most trusted and recommended delivery service in the United Kingdom. The company is known to be a good value for the money.
