Venues News

This unique underground venue was recently shortlisted as the finalist in the category of Best Unusual or Unique Venue in London.

On Friday, 5th October The London Venue Awards 2018 awarded them with the silver prize, meaning that the venue sets high standards in excellence, uniqueness, and creativity in venue and events management. They are delighted to be recognised as one of the top unusual venues in London!

The venue has been operating for a year now – a year that has been thrilling and very exciting. They have accommodated a very diverse type of events and learned that our space is genuinely adaptable for any kind of requests. Moreover, the venue offers a major experience enhancer – Mail Rail. If you have not heard – they have a miniature train where your event guests can embark on and travel beneath the streets of London. It stops right at the venue and can be used for branding and personalisation! They are the only venue in London that provides such an experience and will leave your guests truly impressed and thrilled.

What is this train ride?

Located deep beneath the streets of the capital is London’s secret 100-year-old Post Office railway. In mid-2017, the Mail Rail tunnels opened to the public for the first time, as an immersive ride through its narrow network of hidden tunnels. Once inside the specially-made passenger trains, your guests will embark on a thrilling and historical journey 70ft underneath the streets of London. Each train can accommodate up to 20 guests with a journey time lasting 15 minutes. The trains are available to hire exclusively on a 3-hr basis. The train transforms into an immersive and themed experience during the holiday season!
