The long abandoned Post Office Railway is to start tours from July, with tickets going on sale next month.
A specially commissioned little railway carriage has been built to carry passengers on a looping trip around part of the mothballed tunnel network as part of a larger museum of postal history.
The tours will include the maintenance depot area at Mount Pleasant, near Farringdon, then a journey down into the tunnels themselves.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
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.
