POSTAL MUSEUM OPENING

London’s most anticipated new heritage attraction, The Postal Museum, has confirmed it will officially open to the public on Friday 28 July 2017.

The museum’s galleries will take guests on a journey through five-centuries of world-class curiosities, providing a different, previously unseen view on some of the world’s most significant historical events, and an insight into the quirky beginnings of the earliest social network.

Once visitors have taken in the museum, their ticket will then grant them access to a subterranean world that – up until now – remained hidden from public view. Visitors will descend into the old engineering depot of Mail Rail - the one hundred year old little-known Post Office railway - and board a miniature train designed to transport them through its narrow tunnels. The interactive train ride will pass through and stop at the original Mount Pleasant station platforms, where an impressive audio visual display will take riders back in time, giving an insight into the heyday of the railway. Mail Rail will also have a dedicated and interactive children’s play zone: Sorted!

Adult tickets will cost £16 inclusive of an optional £1.50 voluntary donation. Train journeys commence in September and tickets may be booked in advance.

The Postal Museum is supported by National Lottery players through the Heritage Lottery Fund, Royal Mail and Post Office Limited.

Address: The Postal Museum, Phoenix Place, Clerkenwell, London WC1X 0DA
