Here's something that would make the urban explorer in you wish you were in London, UK: the Post Office's secret underground railway. From the article:

It is without a doubt the Mail Rail sits at the throne, laughing maniacally at the puny adventurers unable to even stare it in the eyes without bursting into flames, the pinnacle of exploration in London. There is, and will never be anything like it again, its uniqueness forever unrivalled, London's final unconquered "Grail" now a slain beast.

Website Silent UK managed to find their way inside and have posted this beautiful article filled with gorgeous photography showing us what they found. A lengthy but fascinating read.
