What To Expect

If you're a fan of history or even just the postal service, then you'll want to check out the Postal Museum in London. This museum is dedicated to the history of the postal service, and it's full of fascinating exhibits.

One of the highlights of the Postal Museum is the exhibition on the history of the postal service in the UK. This exhibit traces the origins of the postal service back to the early days of the British Empire. It's a fascinating look at how the postal service has evolved over time.

Another highlight of the Postal Museum is the collection of postal memorabilia. This collection includes items from all over the world, and it's a great way to see how the postal service has been used in different cultures.

Now the best highlight is the Mail Rail! The Mail Rail, located across the street from The Postal Museum, tells the story of the postal service's subterranean world beneath London's streets.

It is a 100-year-old postal railway in London. Along with traveling along the tracks that were once operational 22 hours a day, you'll be able to enjoy interactive exhibits and an audio-visual show charting a century of postal engineering innovations. Not to mention the museum also has a café and a shop.
