Explore the three centuries old tea shop
Brits are also known for their endless love of tea. London used to run the Twinings Café practically on the Strand and we have seen some of the amazing changes since it were established in 1706. Twining was probably the first who brought tea to the UK and has been offering the brews to the Royal households since 1837.
Have a tour to a subterranean railway
It’s not the Tube. It’s the new Postal Museum which has brought one of the railways back to life under London. Once upon a time, they were used for the delivery of letters when only two deliveries were made in a day. In July 2017, Mail Rail has been opened.
