The Postal Museum, located a 15 minute walk from King’s Cross station, houses the fascinating story of the first social network.
Bring your family to explore the rich history of the Royal Mail and Post Office through interactive galleries, learning activities and much-anticipated subterranean rail ride, the Mail Rail! The Postal Museum offers something for visitors of all backgrounds and of all ages.
After an immersive subterranean journey on the Mail Rail, cross over the road to visit our café, The Counter. Enjoy freshly made cakes and award-wining coffee or join us for hot and cold breakfasts from 10am including porridge, granola and scrambled eggs with avocado toast or smoked salmon.
Stay for lunch and choose from hot and cold mains like fresh salads, pasta and sandwiches. Let the kids build their own children’s lunchbox when they pick their five favourite items including a main, fruit, veg, drink and a treat. Kids’ hot choices including miniature train pasta, combination postal sandwiches and soup with flatbread. For a special treat, enjoy a glass of Prosecco or wine, cold beer or try our original vanilla and marshmallow cupcakes in the shape of Tibs, The Postal Museum cat!
