The Postal Museum has announced fresh dates for the chance to walk through old Mail Rail tunnels and is, for the first time, offering tunnel walks on Saturday evenings as well.

Visitors 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.

You will be in the tunnels for approximately 1 hour and 15mins.

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.

At time of writing, tours are available on the following dates:


  • Tues 5th
  • Tues 12th
  • Tues 29th
  • Tues 26th


  • Tues 2nd
  • Fri 12th
  • Sat 20th
  • Tues 23rd


  • Fri 3rd
  • Tues 7th
  • Sat 18th
  • Fri 24th
  • Tues 28th


  • Fri 7th
  • Tues 11th
  • Sat 22nd
  • Tues 25th

The tunnel walks cost £60 in March, but will be slightly cheaper at £58 from April onwards and can be booked from here.

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

    This is a fantastic experience, and well worth doing. The tour guides are great and you get to see a lot more than on the Mail Train rides. My favourite bit was exploring the old mess room on the platform, it’s just liked they walked out and left everything as it was.
