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!
