It has been announced that London’s previously hidden underground Mail Rail will be open to the public next year. The route was once used to transport post beneath the bustling capital city.

Once used by Royal Mail postal service to pass letters and parcels underneath the city, the 23-mile network will welcome visitors to explore a small section of the underground network.

The line has not changed a lot since its closure 11 years ago, with old engines and equipment sitting in stations.

In recent years some trips have already taken place, mail workers have put on trips for young children at Christmas and painted festive murals on the tunnel walls.

When it opens the remaining trains will be converted to allow those who visit London to take a short ride.
