SUNDAY We depart our local joining point and travel to London. Our coach will take you directly to the hotel, where luggage will be unloaded, leaving you free to enjoy all the sights and attractions of the capital. Return to the hotel at your leisure to check in after 3 pm.
MONDAY We make our way to the Postal Museum for our timed entry, and to discover the surprising story of the first social network. We descend into the former engineering depot of Mail Rail, the 100 year old Post Office railway, to board a miniature train and descend into the stalactite filled tunnels. We ride through the hidden tunnels, discover a unique piece of industrial heritage, and explore inspiring exhibitions packed with incredible objects. After our visit we enjoy a two course lunch, with tea/coffee in a restaurant less than a two minute walk from the museum. After a leisurely lunch we continue homeward.
Please note that the train is unsuitable for those with mobility issues, or those sensitive to small places, loud noises or flashing lights.
