London Stock Exchange welcomes The Postal Museum
The Postal Museum is London’s newest heritage attraction. Opening in Clerkenwell, central London in mid-2017, it reveals the surprising and curious history of Britain’s earliest social network; the post. Through interactive exhibition galleries, visitors will be taken on a journey through five centuries of innovation and ingenuity that changed the way we communicate forever, and paved the way for the instant, digital communications of today.
Across the road, Mail Rail at The Postal Museum will offer an immersive subterranean ride through the century old tunnels of the hidden Post Office Underground Railway. Revealed for the first time since it shut its doors, it played a vital, hidden role in keeping us all in touch, transporting millions of letters and parcels across a congested capital. Find out more about this ambitious plan by visiting The Postal Museum’s website www.postalmuseum.org.
“Both the postal service and London Stock Exchange have been bastions of British business for centuries and share many historical parallels. It is an honour to recognise this by opening the day’s trading with Donald Brydon, Chairman of London Stock Exchange Group and long-time supporter of The Postal Museum.” Rick Wills, Chairman of The Postal Museum.
