Why We Love This Deal

For more than 75 years, the Mail Rail was a vital artery in Britain's communication network.

Why We Love It

  • A 15-minute ride on the miniature Mail Rail "delivers an underground history lesson" of a subterranean railway which "once whizzed four million letters a day across London" (The Guardian)
  • You'll travel back in time through the original tunnels and station platforms of London's 100-year-old postal railway, more than 20 metres below Royal Mail's Mount Pleasant sorting office
  • Meanwhile, in The Postal Museum you'll explore interactive galleries revealing the surprising history of the British postal service. Exhibits include flintlock pistols used to defend the mail, Victorian Valentine cards, and a whole sheet of Penny Blacks (the world's first adhesive postage stamp)
Online booking required. You will then be issued with a ticket by The Postal Museum, which you will need to print and bring with you on the day. The regular value stated above is based on the maximum combined cost of the items included in this experience at the time of publication (27 June, 2019). Subject to availability. Vouchers are limited and may therefore sell out at any time. A 48-hour cancellation policy applies. Any additional items ordered will be charged at their full value. Due to its original intended purpose, the Mail Rail has some restrictions in terms of height and accessibility; please read full terms and conditions, prior to your visit, here:  *Tickets include 1 x ride on Mail Rail (valid on your first visit) and unlimited access to the museum's exhibitions for one year following your first visit. 

Maximum group size is seven. Must be used by one adult (16+) in one visit. Entry for children under three years old is free of charge and they do not require a ticket. No limit to the number of vouchers that can be purchased per person or as gifts. Cannot be combined with any other offer. No cash value or cash back.
