Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Jay,

How’re you doing? I am writing to share my experience of visiting a train museum recently. It is located in the city centre, just two blocks from the Green Park metro station. It opened only recently but it has already started getting a lot of visitors.

You can find there numerous kinds of train engines, some of them dating back to hundreds of years. They also have the first coal engine which was invented by British and is really spectacular. I was really captivated and fascinated by the innovative mechanism people used in earlier times. You would really love this place as you hold a great passion for ancient rail / railway systems. I certainly believe that this museum is meant for you.

If you are free this weekend, do visit my place and we can go together. I don’t mind making another visit because I really enjoyed it.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards
