Reimagine your city car-free

Car Free Day is celebrated across the world. This year the Mayor hosted London’s biggest ever celebration giving Londoners the chance to enjoy the city car-free and reclaim our streets while walking, cycling and exploring 🌳.

The event in 2019 took place across 20km of traffic-free roads in central London and events and Play Streets in participating boroughs, everyone enjoyed fun, free activities like yoga and meditation, cycling, pop-up picnic areas, live entertainment and more! 🎉

Reimagine events are inclusive and accessible to everyone.
