Take A Ride On An Abandoned Underground Train Track

share on:

Experience the real Secret London with a ride on this creepy, abandoned Royal Mail railway line.

The brand spanking new Postal Museum has resurrected a section of the track deep under London. This July you’ll be able to ‘experience the hidden history of Mail Rail in thrilling motion’. Oh, and did we mention organisers are also promising riders ‘a theatrical surprise or two’. Intrigued?

For the first time ever, this subterranean network of tunnels and tracks is open to the public. You’ll be able to take a wild ride on the mail rail’s renovated tracks under Mount Pleasant. They’ve designed a nifty little train to carry punters through the hidden history of the ‘first social network’. It’s London’s answer to Disneyland. With less adults dressed as cartoon animals, obviously.

Ok, the details of the actual ride are pretty hazy at the moment, but we thought it was worth a mention after we saw their selection of eerie images. What we do know is that the underground experience lasts for 15 minutes and opens to the public on 28th July at the new Postal Museum which is located at Phoenix Place, Clerkenwell, WC1X 0DA.

Adult tickets will cost £16, inclusive of an optional £1.50 voluntary donation, and should go on sale ‘soon.’
