The Postal Museum & Mail Rail

Unique and urban event spaces

The Courtyard and Mail Rail at The Postal Museum are award winning venues in Clerkenwell, Central London. The spaces at The Postal Museum can easily be adapted to suit a variety of events from corporate to experiential to private.

The unique venue provides guests with an exclusive opportunity to enhance their event experience with an underground miniature train ride, transporting visitors back in time through the secret disused miniature 100-year-old tunnels of the world’s first driverless, electric railway. Snaking 70ft below ground deep under London’s streets, the Mail Rail train carried letters and parcels across the capital from 1927 until it was abandoned in 2003.
