At London’s Postal Museum (15-20 Phoenix Pl., London, England, WC1X 0DA, U.K.; phone +44 300 0300 700, www.postalmuseum.org), visitors can ride on a more than 100-year-old, subterranean, miniature postal train.

A 15-minute ride on the “Mail Rail,” located 70 feet under the former Mt. Pleasant Royal Mail sorting room, is in cramped conditions (carriages are 51 inches from floor to canopy and 31 inches side to side), with portions in total darkness.

Museum and rail open daily, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (final ride, 4:30). Adult, £17 (near $22), or child, £10.
