A very unusual and humbling little park just to the north of Saint Paul’s between Little Britain and Angel Street (and overlooked by most tourists) is Postman’s Park. A large number of handmade tiles made by the Royal Doulton company preserve memory of people who lost their lives in an attempt to save others and names, dates and the manner of their deaths are given.
The park was the idea of Victorian painter George Watts and takes its name from the fact that postmen from a nearby sorting office used to come here for lunch.
The memorials are really touching as they all relate to tragic deaths in the service of others.
Even though it is a stone’s throw from London’s best known church the park receives few visitors and is a great place to see an unusual side of London or grab a quiet lunch. [more ]
