London Postal Museum and Mail Ride at Mount Pleasant

The 2-3 hour visit will include a guided tour of the Museum, a trip on Mail Rail and a visit to the Mail Rail Exhibition. Descend into the former engineering depot of Mail Rail – the one-hundred- year-old Post Office railway – board a miniature train for a 15-minute ride into the original tunnels. See the original and largely unchanged station platforms deep below 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.    

As Mail Rail was designed to carry mail sacks there are some restrictions and rules: for details please see www.postalmuseum.org/visit/planyour-visit/facilities/mail-rail-access 

We will travel off peak to Farringdon from where there is a 15-minute walk.  If you might be interested in this trip, please contact:   Group Contacts: Elaine Fox/ Tony Kuczys  01462 735642; London_Places@lalg.org.uk  lalg.org.uk/London_Places
