7th May 2023

Journey back in time through the original tunnels and station platforms of London’s 100-year-old postal railway.

See the unchanged station platforms, deep below Royal Mail’s Mount Pleasant sorting office.

See and hear the people who worked on it, experience their lives below ground and glimpse hidden parts of the railway that once kept the mail coursing through London for 22 hours every day.

Discover interactive exhibits that bring to life more than 100 years of postal engineering. Descend into the one hundred year old former engineering depot of Mail Rail – the Post Office railway – and board a miniature train into the original tunnels.

After our visit to the museum we make our way to bustling Covent Garden for some free time for you to enjoy the many shops, eateries or just take your time to soak up the atmosphere.

Please note there are ride restrictions for the Mail Rail…please check these at the end of this listing. Should you not be able to ride the Mail Rail you will be able to follow the ride on screen.
