The Postal Museum and Mail Rail are London’s newest attractions. Showcasing remarkable history and never-before told stories from the past five centuries of communications, with the help of interactive galleries and an extraordinary collection of postal history you can. On this short break we also have the unique opportunity to journey back in time as we ride the hidden tunnels of the Mail Rail, London’s secret 100 year old Post Office Railway.
DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – After door-to-door pick-ups we take you to St Albans for free time. The city’s colourful history can be seen in the Roman remains and the beautiful medieval architecture dusted over the city. With a wide range of independent shops and café it’s the perfect place to grab a cup of tea and watch the world pass you by. This afternoon we travel to our hotel.
Day 2 – Today we visit the Postal Museum in London, much more than just a museum your visit will include a unique journey on the Mail Rail – where you will ride through a section of unused track so that you can experience the hidden history of Mail Rail in motion! Afterwards enjoy 500 years of ground breaking postal history before we take you home.
