Following our 2 sell-out trips last year, another chance to enjoy this day out gives you entrance to the newly opened Postal Museum in London which includes a two course lunch before the tour.
The museum’s galleries will take you on a journey through five-centuries of world-class curiosities, providing a different, previously unseen view on some of the world’s most significant historical events, and an insight into the quirky beginnings of the earliest social network.
Once you have explored the museum, your ticket will then grant you access to a subterranean world that – up until now – remained hidden from public view.
Descend into the old engineering depot of Mail Rail – the one-hundred-year old little-known Post Office railway – and board a miniature train designed to transport people through its narrow tunnels for the first time. The train ride will pass through and stop at the original Mount Pleasant station platforms 70 feet underground, where an impressive audio visual display will take riders back in time, giving an insight into the heyday of the railway.
