Edinburgh and Skye top picture postcard poll

South of the Border, the top beauty spots to send a postcard from include the artists’ and surfers’ town of St Ives in Cornwall, Windermere in the Lake District, and Tenby in Pembrokeshire.

Book and manuscripts expert Clive Farahar, who has been commissioned by Royal Mail to compile a guide to the postcard tradition, which can be viewed at, said: “It’s satisfying to see that the picture postcard still plays such an important role in the modern holiday, and these curiously British keepsakes provide people with the perfect opportunity to create their own personal piece of history in a fun and thoughtful way.”

Julie Pirone of the Royal Mail said: “Whilst hot dog legs and seafront selfies are a fantastic way to showcase your holiday to friends, nothing shows someone that you truly wish they were there than a postcard with a thoughtful, funny and informative message.

“Think of it this way – you’ll never be able to keep a social media post in the attic.”
