After breakfast we depart the hotel. There’s just time for one last story from the Capital, with a stop at The Postal Museum. Referred to as the ‘First Social Network’, take a ride on the exciting Mail Rail train which operated through the secret underground Post Office tunnels below London’s streets for over 80 years. An excellent postal heritage exhibition includes millions of stamps, a great range of iconic postal post boxes, vintage postal uniforms, vehicles, and bicycles - so get your fill of postal nostalgia before you make your journey home.
