Reimagine: Car Free Day in London Free

Car Free Day
Rediscover central London with fun activities and free events on car-free streets. Read More


Leave the car at home, put on some comfy shoes and reclaim London’s streets with a whole day of free activities at Reimagine in London.

The biggest ever Car Free Day celebrations in London provides the unique chance to “reimagine” the city, by walking or cycling through 20km (12 miles) of closed roads in central London, stopping off for performances and activities along the way.

Where and when is Reimagine taking place?

In 2019, you could enjoy activities around Tower Bridge, London Bridge and the City of London. Make sure to download the Visit London app to find your way around and to discover activities on the day.

Usually Reimagine takes place from 10.30am until 5pm and is free to attend, with no tickets required.

What is Car Free Day?

Car Free Day is celebrated across the world on or around 22 September. It encourages motorists to choose alternative travel such as walking and cycling or public transport, instead of using their car for the day.

How to travel to Reimagine

Due to road closures for the car-free festival, some bus routes in central London will be diverted. Plan the best way to travel to the event with Transport for London’s journey planner and keep up to date with the latest transport status.

In 2019, Santander Cycles offered free access to the scheme across London on the day to encourage everyone to cycle to the event. There are 11,500 bikes at more than 750 docking stations across the capital, with extra cycles available around the event area to cater for increased demand.

The event has been designed to ensure it is inclusive for everyone. Taxi-drop-off points and pedal-powered shuttles help to make it accessible for all.
