Carl Lomas comments, ‘Inspiring exhibitions packed with incredible objects and very interactive.’

The Postal Museum is at 15 Phoenix Place WC1 around the corner from the Mount Pleasant sorting office and is open from ten until five most days.

From the very first 'master of the post' in 1512 to the vast network of today, the Royal Mail is an intrinsic part of everyday life in Britain
