More than just letter, you'll find train rides, adventure play areas, and keep your eyes out for the lion too!
If you think The Postal Museum is just about getting your letters sent, think again! With a train ride, an adventure play zone and even a lion (?!), post has taken on a whole new meaning.
Hop aboard the Mail Rail, a miniature train which takes you on an underground exploration, with more than a few surprises… Mail Rail will speed you through old-fashioned tunnels and platforms, before dropping kids off ready for more fun at Sorted! - the postal play space where kids under 8 can immerse themselves in a tiny town of slides, chutes and trolleys.
The exhibits are packed with curiosities that unveil the story of the very first social network. Kids can get hands-on in an interactive exhibits based in an abandoned engineering depot, then discover the weird and wonderful things sent in the past like Victorian Valentines cards and even an actual lion!
