To the best of my knowledge, all British banks withdrew from the Eurocheque scheme some time ago. This seems to be confirmed by the British Bankers' Association website:
Eurocheques can no longer be paid into British banks or obtained from them. You'll have to contact the hotel and arrange an alternative method of payment such as debit card, credit card, PayPal, Ikobo or Western Union.
my first answer is right...you can purchase them from banks and travel agents no problem. Going Places and Thomas Cook always have them in stock. You'll have to pay a commission fee when you buy usually about 2%.
You can get cheques for ALL major currencies....ie sterling, euro, us dollars, australian dollars etc
You may also be able to get them at the Post Office but they may have to order them in for you.
You cannot get them (foreign currency cheques) at a post office. What you can get there (larger branches only) is a moneygram which will transfer the money electronically to an office at the far end - similar to Western Union.
And mkt I think that although your answer is right you are talking about travellers cheques which are slightly different.
