About Legible London
Walking is a great way of getting around London.
As well as being free, healthy and environmentally friendly, it can also save you time - 109 journeys between neighbouring central London Underground stations are actually quicker on foot than the Tube!
Yet many people are put off by inconsistent signage and confusion about distances between areas.
We've developed Legible London to tackle these issues and help both residents and visitors walk to their destination quickly and easily.
Based on extensive research, the easy-to-use system presents information in a range of ways, including on maps and signs, to help people find their way. It's also integrated with other transport modes so when people are leaving the Underground, for example, they can quickly identify the route to their destination.
Expanding the system
Legible London is already working successfully across London, including much of the West End, South Bank and Richmond and Twickenham, and research shows that almost nine out of 10 people want the system to be rolled out across the Capital.
We're now working with boroughs, Business Improvement Districts and other organisations to expand the system further.
