Explore inspiring galleries and hear extraordinary stories behind the Mail Rail at The Postal Museum. Read More


Relive the history of the world’s first “social network” at The Postal Museum, through objects and artefacts charting the development of postal services.

Discover a host of objects such as post boxes, uniforms, greeting cards and stamps, and delve into stories from the past and present with permanent collections and temporary exhibitions.

Read letters sent from thousands of miles away with Writing Home, a collection of post sent home by soldiers in conflict, survivors of human trafficking, or those who left in search of a better life across the globe.

For an extra thrill, travel back in time on the Mail Rail through the original tunnels under the museum. You’ll have the chance to enjoy a 20-minute ride on this specially adapted subterranean train network, which stretched from Whitechapel to Paddington and kept London’s communications flowing for more than 75 years.
