Tours through the Post Office’s disused Mail Rail tunnels will resume later this month having been closed since the pandemic lockdown started.

The Mail Rail tours have been modified to take account of the current situation, and will run on a reduced capacity, with households seated in sections divided by Perspex screens. Additionally, household groups will be boarded and disembarked one at a time.

Included in the price of entry, visitors ride Mail Rail first, before then crossing the road to visit the Postal Museum galleries and temporary exhibition.

In addition, the tunnel walks will return throughout November and December.

Rather than taking a trip in the modified passenger train people can walk through the tunnels instead.

Tunnel Walks are always incredibly popular, with tickets selling out almost as soon as they go on sale, so pre-booking is essential. Tunnel Walks will take place throughout November and December, and tickets will be on sale on the website and announced via the museum’s mailing list on 20 October.

The museum reopens on Thursday 29th October, and tickets go on sale today here.

Tickets include 1x ride on Mail Rail on your first visit and unlimited entry to The Postal Museum’s galleries and exhibitions for one year from the date of your first visit. Pre-booking is essential.

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

    No power in the tracks so quite safe to walk the tunnels.

    Many years ago when it was still operational I went down there on an organised visit. It was fascinating to see the trains coming and going & being unloaded/loaded.

    It is worth visiting to get a snapshot of the abandoned line.

    Looks very interesting, but £55 is a bit steep, If it was £30-35 max, fair enough.
