    Actually, where could you have it sent?
    Excluding school/college, or any other dwellings where people may know you.

    But a PO Box costs a lot to set up. Isn't there a free solution to this problem?

    If I send it to my College how do I stop them redirecting it to me or calling me on my landline number to tell me it has arrived?

    I can't say what it is, but it is nothing illegal or improper, just private.

    I hope someone can think of a creative solution.

    You could get it sent to school/college but ask them to call your mobile when it's there rather than your landline?or just tell them you'll come by the office and ask if it's there?

    Only other thing I can think of is a friends house.

    Poste Restante? There's something like that where it'll just be held at your local post office for you to collect.

    Right on the money - you can have post sent to any Post Office branch and then collect it in person.

    It's a place people go after work, hence the name. Don't let it worry you.

    We don't have no post offices in my village no more. Long gone. I forgot what they were for a minute.

    OK, but do I need to apply or pay or anything, or can I just have things arranged to be sent to my local PO? From looking at the website it doesn't seem I need to. Ah, I've just seen the part where it implies it is only for letters, not packages. Damn.

    "Poste Restante
    If you're travelling but want to stay in touch, you can take your letterbox with you. People can address mail to you and send it to any UK Post Office™ and some main post offices in larger towns abroad. You can use the service for up to three months in any one UK town for any letters.

    -Pick up your mail from Post Office™ branches in the UK and abroad
    -Mail stored for two weeks from the UK, one month from abroad
    -Mail returned to sender if not picked up
    -Free of charge in the UK"
