Before the time of checking our inboxes, text messages or the modern wonder of social media, people actually had to wait for a mailman to deliver their news.
Get back to the communication basics with a visit to The Postal Museum. Uncover the deep story of the postal system and how it works. You'll even get a chance to see letters recovered from a shipwreck!
More than just mail
At The Postal Museum there is something for everyone! Make the day special and entertaining for the young ones with a visit to the Postal Play Space.
This indoor play area for ages eight and under will let them have fun exploring the themed area and learn in their own unique way the wonders of communication.
For the thrill-seekers looking for a little more action, head down to the Mail Rail, a 100-year-old subterranean network of tunnels.
This ride will take you and the young ones back in time as you navigate the original tunnels and station platforms of London's 100-year-old postal railway.
From five-wheeled cycles to rockets and an escaped lioness, the story of the postal service is long and full of incredible tales.
See a restored mail coach that once thundered across the country, get up close to the world's only sheet of Penny Black stamps, the world's first postage stamps.
Send anonymous messages to a friend or stranger through pneumatic tubes, and see a horde of unread love letters recovered from maritime misfortune. The list goes on!
Forget everything you know about post, more than you could imagine awaits you so get ready for a surprise or two!
Must-know: The Postal Museum starts closing at 16:45.
