Next Saturday, there will be a replica horse-drawn mail coach running between Southwark’s George Inn to Guildhall Yard in the centre of the City.
There, it will be joined by a host of vintage Royal Mail vehicles including vans, motorbikes and a carriage from the Mail Rail network.
There will also be a walking tour that takes in the sites of the first postal buildings in London as well as Postman’s Park.
The mail coach departs The George Inn, Borough High Street at around 11am and is expected to arrive at Guildhall Yard around midday (on display until 2pm).
The whole thing is part of the Royal Mail’s 500th anniversary events.
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.
