The park is home to a memorial to heroic men and women of the Victorian age whose selfless courage is remembered in a series of Royal Doulton ceramic tiles which tell their stories.
The memorial was the idea of Victorian painter and philanthropist George Watts, who was inspired by the heroism of the people commemorated and did not want it to be forgotten. The park's name comes from the nearby post office in King Edward Street.
Postman's Park is just off Little Britain in the City, a short walk from St Paul's Cathedral and Tube Station. Click here to see the location on a map. For more information visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postman's_Park.
