Nearly every London borough has at least one of the more than 1,700 Legible London signs.

Monolith in South Kensington

We developed Legible London to help both residents and visitors walk to their destination quickly and easily. The signs offer a consistent experience and information about distances between areas.

They're also integrated with other transport modes so, for example, when people are leaving the Tube they can quickly identify the route to their destination.

Delivering your scheme

Introducing Legible London in your area can encourage walking, reduce street clutter and improve links to businesses and local attractions - making where you live a better place for everyone.

We work with a range of organisations representing disability groups to ensure the Legible London design is as inclusive as possible. For example, the Legible London maps show steps, pavement widths and pedestrian crossings.
