The Postal Museum in London opened to the general public in July 2017. Residents and guests of of the city will be able to not only visit the historical exposition of the museum, but to also ride through the abandoned underground tunnels, that were used to transport mail a century ago. The Mail Rail was the first system that worked without any drivers or electricity.

These narrow tunnels are also famous for the fact that art from the British museums was hidden here during World War I. The total span of the underground tracks is 6.5 miles. The network is located 70 feet below ground. The train ride is accompanied by an audiovisual show devoted to the history of The Mail Rail.

 The exposition of Postal Museum covers more than 500 years of postal history in the UK and around the world. There is also a special playground for kids: a city district in miniature, where children can play in mail delivery.
