This scenic park acquired its name due to its popularity as a lunchtime garden with workers from the nearby old General Post Office. It is home to the famous Watts memorial, built in 1900 by Victorian painter and philanthropist GF Watts (1817-1904).

Postman's Park featured in 2004 in film 'Closer' which was based on the 1997 play by Patrick Marber. A key part of the plot revolves around the memorial tablet to Alice Ayres.
