Win a walk through history with The Postal Museum Tunnel Walk competition

Sky HISTORY is giving one lucky winner the chance to discover one of London's best kept secrets. We have teamed up with The Postal Museum to give away 2 Tunnel Walk tickets to explore The Post Office Underground Railway, or Mail Rail.

The Postal Museum is an is an award-winning independent museum based in London's Farringdon that tells the story of postal communication and its impact on a global society. Along with family-friendly, hands-on exhibitions and modern research facilities, visitors can also take an immersive ride on the 100-year-old Mail Rail tunnels, London’s hidden underground railway.

Tunnel Walk: What to expect

Explore the 100-year-old Mail Rail on foot and get access to Mail Rail’s tunnels, tracks and platforms, exploring parts of the railway that aren’t accessible on the Mail Rail ride.

Expert guides tell the surprising stories about the staff who built, operated and maintained the underground railway over the course of 100 years – from its construction in the early 1900s, through the heyday in the middle of the century, to the eventual closure in 2003. Visit The Postal Museum for more information. For more information check out these Tunnel Walk FAQs.
