The Postal Museum has started selling tickets for people keen to book a ride in the mail rail tunnels.
The Postal Museum tells the history of the Royal Mail and earlier postage services in the UK, but the main attraction for most people is the chance to take a ride on a small train through tunnels that were once used by the Royal Mail for its own private underground railway.
Tickets are now on sale for combined Mail Rail and museum visit from 20th May – and are available from here.
When it reopens, the museum and mail rail will be open Thur-Sun 10:30am to 5pm, with a late close on Saturdays of 6:30pm.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its 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.
