The Main Event

Step back in time with your visit to The Postal Museum and discover the history of how our post has been delivered over the years.

From five-wheeled cycles and pillar boxes to a priceless sheet of the world’s first postage stamp, the award-winning museum offers a unique half-day visit for all ages.  

Take a ride on Mail Rail, a miniature electric railway that runs under the streets of London and has kept the capital connected for almost a century. 

After your visit to The Postal Museum, it's time to revive yourselves with a delicious afternoon tea at the RAILS restaurant at the Great Northern Hotel. This 5* hotel, at the heart of King's Cross St Pancras, offers a refined yet relaxed atmosphere where you'll feel right at home tucking into an array of pretty pastries and finger sandwiches.
