Venue Details & Map
I first learnt about this place thanks to a book I read by one of my favourite authors, Danny Wallace (Charlotte Street). In it he describes this beautiful hideaway tucked in the midst of the bustling City, and the heroic acts celebrated on the wall.

This is a gem of London. And better yet, a hidden gem.
I learned of Postman's Park after seeing the movie "Closer" a long time ago. This is where Jude Law's character, at the end of the film, realises that Natalie Portman had been lying to him the entire time. He sees her name, Alice Ayres, on a tile and knows he knows nothing about her.

A great place to eat lunch, take a nap or read a book.
