OXFORD AND WARWICK
Now this might be one of my most fun things to do in London. It opened a year ago and it's called MAIL RAIL. It's the little tiny, underground railway with tiny little cars and a tiny glass dome. This is how they transported mail under London for many years.
You squeeze into your tiny car (don't stand up, don't be over 5 feet tall or you'll almost have to duck just to sit in the seat. Boy though, is it fun. Then after you go through the Rail Mail museum and you can go in a rail car where you have to sort mail while the moving floor tries to throw you off balance. Not sure which was more fun, the train or the sorting. Super friendly folks. Then after you go across the street to the museum (well you go there first for tickets but really you should pre-book) and check out the entire history of the British Postal Service. Wow...interesting or what? Loved this day. Afterwards we went to the local "Futon" shop and bought a mattress topper to put on our hotel bed so that maybe we could actually sleep on the cement bed. It did make it much better and the 100 pounds was cheaper than moving hotels and paying an extra $100 pounds a night for a room. Sometimes you gotta just be creative in your stay.
New friends at Mail Rail. I told you they were super friendly.
