Travel back in time to the days where buses were drawn by horses, and the train carriages you see today definitely didn’t exist in the early 19th century. For one day, the iconic Regent Street will be transformed into a remarkable display of transport designs, taking you back to the Victorian times and moving you into the present day and the future. Transported By Design Festival is a free festival hosted by Transport for London (TfL) and the London Transport Museum, bringing heritage vehicles to the streets (from buses to taxis and even the early tube carriages). Not only will this give you a chance to see how Londoners travelled before our time, but you will also gain an insight into the classic advertising posters, maps and signage. From Piccadilly Circus to Oxford Circus, visitors will further be adorned with the chance to see what the future of transport looks like with Virtual Reality headsets, alongside the ability to share your own ideas at the sketch station of TfL 2040. If you’re running low on fuel, there will also be plenty of food and drink to keep you going!
