70ft beneath the streets of London lies a narrow network of hidden tunnels. Used since the 1920 to deliver mail across the city, the secret Post Office railway is now open to the public for the first time – making Mail Rail one of London’s newest and most unusual visitor attractions, as well as a unique place for filming.
Completed in 1927, the original Mail Rail stretched for 6.5 miles from Whitechapel to Paddington and carried more than four million letters every day. After its closure in 2003 the Postal Museum developed the Mail Rail experience at the former Mount Pleasant sorting office and opened this unique site to the pubic in September 2017.
Special miniature passenger trains have proven to be a huge hit with the visitors, but the fantastic filming potential of this maze of tunnels, platforms and vaulted arches is still yet to be discovered.
