Coming to London? Visit The Postal Museum’s Mail Rail, a new attraction

a train going through a tunnel

Many years ago, the Royal Mail used to operate an underground railway for parcels and letters between Paddington Station, several London delivery offices and Liverpool Station. The railway opened in 1927 and closed in 2003, but has been refurbished and re-opens as a visitor attraction.

Access is via The Postal Museum.

The journey is in a mini-train, think one person wide, through tunnels constructed in the 1930’s. Well worth a visit if you are looking for something new in London.
