Event Details

A Guided Walk from the steps of the Royal Exchange

This walk covers 350 years of London Postal History – from the Coffee Houses of the 1600s to the electronic communications of today. Discover why pillar boxes are coloured red, why the post is called the ‘post’ and the mail is called the ‘mail’ and why the floors of all telephone boxes slope.
