Even though we can send holiday selfies across the world in a matter of seconds, the humble postcard has endured and survived the digital age.

Wish You Were Here at The Postal Museum highlights the postcard's role in connecting people for over 150 years. When first issued in 1870, the postcard meant new and faster correspondence, and was used to send love notes, boost soldiers' morale, and, of course, to indulge in a bit of holiday boasting!

The exhibition allows you to trace the timeline of the postcard, including its role in the history of communication, its value during World War One, and how it influenced the culture surrounding the great British seaside.

The Postal Museum is a new museum run by the Postal Heritage Trust, which covers five centuries of history through the eyes of its iconic postal service. The museum, which opened in 2017, takes visitors on a journey into Britain's amazing social and communications history. There is also an underground train ride through a 100-year-old train network.

It is easy to reach from Farringdon, Chancery Lane, Russell Square and Charing Cross tube stations.
