Ride Mail Rail
Join OutdoorLads to journey back in time through the original tunnels and station platforms of London's 100-year-old postal railway, followed by a social drink in Soho!
Take a 15-minute journey under the streets of London.
Descend into the former engineering depot of Mail Rail – the one hundred year old Post Office railway – board a miniature train into the original tunnels.
- See the original and largely unchanged station platforms, deep below Royal Mail’s Mount Pleasant sorting office.
- Take in a theatrical experience that travels back in time to the railway’s lively 1930s heyday.
- 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.
May not be suitable for those sensitive to: small spaces, motion, loud noises, flashing lights.
Mail Rail Exhibition
Explore the extraordinary stories behind Mail Rail – from conception to resurrection – and the people who made it all possible.
The Postal Museum Exhibition
From cryptic Victorian Valentine cards to a lion encountered on Salisbury Plain. There’s nothing ordinary about the story of the post.
Following which, we'll most likely head to Soho for a drink afterwards.
