There are over 1,700 signs on the streets of London – look out for the distinctive navy blue and yellow signs to help you get around.
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.
Legible London street signs, printed walking maps for retail, tourism and business activities, digital maps, smartphone apps, integrated public transport information – and a unique walking identity for London.
The mapping system is also used on all Santander Cycles docking stations 🚲, in Tube stations 🚇, at bus stops 🚏 and many other places.
You might even see the signs at cities across the world as part of our collaborations with international organisations to encourage more walking.
We’re helping Hong Kong get more people walking in the city with these signs – part of a deal for our new consulting arm. Thanks to suppliers for helping us make this happen @t-kartorgroup @maynarddesign @trueformgroup pic.twitter.com/vgArAmoaOk
