What to expect

Take a ticket for the Postal Museum in London with a ride on the Mail Rail.

There's nothing ordinary about the story of the post. From five-wheeled cycles and the first-ever stamps to a hidden underground train ride. Explore this surprising and entertaining experience for all ages. The Postal Museum tells the story of postal communication and its impact on global society. At the museum, five centuries of extraordinary communications history are brought to life, as seen through the eyes of the iconic postal service. There you'll admire the only sheets of Penny Black stamps in the world and posters from a design revolution in the 1930s. You'll also be able to join the many activities such as sorting mail on a rocking mini-train carriage.

Enjoy a visit to the museum and its family-friendly interactive exhibitions. And to make the day complete, you'll experience an immersive ride on the Mail Rail, the London's secret Post Office underground railway.
