What people say

"The Postal Museum is not like any other in London, set in the 100 year old Post Office. The reason you want to visit this museum is to ride the original railway that was used to deliver letters in the 1900โ€™s. This railway snakes under London and takes your from the former engineering depot into the tunnels and is combined with a theatrical experience."
"This museum is very kid friendly! The best feature is the postal train. London used to transport the mail through the city by underground rail tunnels. At the Postal Museum you can ride in one of these trains and learn about the history of mail in the UK. "
"Suggestion from Instagram, has a ride through the tunnels!"
