The history of Legible London

Legible London is our wayfinding project designed to provide better information throughout the Capital for people who want to walk. 🚶‍♀️ It’s also integrated with public transport information so you can quickly identify the route to your destination.

We work with the London Development Agency, and in partnership with London boroughs, to develop a way of providing coordinated walking information across the Capital, offering benefits for our transport system, for public health, the economy, tourism and the environment.
