Legible London: walking

To celebrate Legible London turning 10 years old, we’ve launched some special edition maps to continue to help people navigate their way through the capital’s streets. There are over 1,700 signs on the streets – look out for the distinctive navy blue and yellow signs to help you get around London.

The history of Legible London

Legible London is a way finding project designed to provide better information throughout the capital for people who want to walk.

TfL worked 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.

There are over 1,700 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.

Legible London’s mapping system is also used on all Santander Cycles docking stations, in Tube stations, at bus stops and many other places.

New maps launched

Special edition anniversary maps of Brixton, Old Street and North Bank have been launched to help people living, working and visiting the Capital to get the best out of London on foot.

The maps have been produced by TfL in partnership with illustrator Matt Blease, and business partnerships in Brixton, Old Street and North Bank.
