Where would you guys say the best and cheapest (including postage) UK place to buy shrimp is? I’m trying to look but it’s tricky as all the postage is so high or it’s all out of stock

Have you looked at your local shops? Maidenhead Aquatics sells shrimps, though different branches sell different colours. Maybe give your local shops a ring to see what they stock?
If you want a specific type, you do need to buy on-line. I know that ProShrimp isn't selling shrimps at the moment because they don't trust couriers to get them to you overnight.

My local store atm didn’t have anything really, I could always take a look at Maidenhead when the lockdown is over, I think I would wanna buy some online though but I’m not sure where to get them from :/

There are Ebay sellers, look at the seller's feedback if you consider buying from there. And bear in mind that some sellers make their shrimps sound better than they really are. The only other on-line shop I'm aware of is ProShrimp - when they start posting again.

Take a look on aquarists classified website. There’s always people with hundreds of shrimp to sell on there. You can search by county, subject etc.
