Good reason to not bother touring in the United Kingdom.

Any other mention of Poste Restante was only about how to go about addressing to take advantage of the facility, including from our own Australia Post.
I don't have an account but I believe that you, Aushiker, do have an account with CTC. Perhaps you could post a message in their forum,Does anyone know … ? and ask how do British cyclists deal with the issue?
Just trying to scratch an itch here but if you have the time...?
Just found this on the CTC forum, touring and Expedition,
Looks like a repeat of the CycleChat post.
