The Postal Museum has announced fresh dates for the chance to walk through the tunnels under Mount Pleasent where the Mail Rail used to carry the post.

Visitors will get access to the original tunnels, tracks and station platforms of London’s 100-year-old postal railway, letting you explore parts of the railway that aren’t accessible on the Mail Rail ride.

The route involves walking on uneven ground in low-light conditions for around 1.2km (0.75 miles) including stepping across rails and up onto platform areas. For this reason, the walk is not accessible by wheelchair users and is not recommended for people with mobility impairments.

The Tunnel Walks cost £55 per person and take place at 3pm, 3:30pm, 6pm and 6:30pm on the following Tuesdays:

  • 12th, 19th and 26th April
  • 3rd and 24th May
  • 7th, 21st and 28th June

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    My name is Brian Walton, when I was married in the seventies I worked first at K.E.B. as a postman and then moved to W.C.D.O. as a PHG, ending up running the Bookroom on nights. I also worked on the P.O.R. from time to time. My wife and son would love to see the tunnels.I am now in Dover and I am a Disc Jockey on Dover community Radio. I made lots of friends during my days at RM and it would be lovely to see the old place again, I just need to work when we can get up to town. Brian Walton, you should have my records somewhere….
