Clapham South Deep Shelter

Tuesday 24 April
Enjoy a private tour of this half-forgotten subterranean relic of the Second World War featuring medical stations, secret bunkers and shelters. This experience has been organised in conjunction with Hidden London and will be led by one of their expert tour guides.


Behind the Scenes: Houses of Parliament

Friday 22 June
An exclusive opportunity to see both Parliamentary Chambers and a tour of their extensive archive. Parliament, arguably London’s most famous and iconic landmark, has a wide (and historically important) postal heritage collection, making this private tour a must-see.


Behind the Scenes: Lord’s Cricket Ground

Thursday 2 August
A chance to visit their archive, impressive grounds and even stay to watch a match – a behind the scenes tour of Lord’s Cricket Ground will be the highlight of the summer in 2018. Whether you are a cricket fan or keen to see their extensive library of sports-related letters and stamps, this visit will offer something for everyone.


Mail Rail with Cocktails

Wednesday 24 October
All aboard! We invite you to ride Mail Rail and journey back in time through the original tunnels and station platforms under Mount Pleasant, followed by cocktails in the depot.


Patrons Christmas Lunch

Date to be confirmed
Get into the festive spirit and celebrate the year with us at our annual Patrons Christmas Lunch. Key members of staff from the Museum will join us as we reflect on the year’s achievements and our plans for the coming year.
