SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED!

Discover the stories, processes, machinery & vehicles of the world’s first social network – the Royal Mail.

Browse through fascinating memorabilia and learn about the ingenious ways in which the Post Office handled logistical challenges to deliver its service, the quality and reliability of which would be unheard of today. Then take a ride on Mail Rail, exploring the underground passages which served as the veins & arteries of the UK’s incredible communication system, allowing the Royal Mail to deliver more than six million mail bags per year at its peak.

Both of our featured hotels are a short distance from the Postal Museum & Mail Rail, as well as many more of London’s famous attractions. Just ask our sales team to recommend another activity to add to your stay!
