London Car Free Day on 22 September – everything you need to know

Last June, the Mayor of London has announced the largest car free day in the history of the city. It will take place on the 22nd of September 2019 and it will affect 20 km of roads in central London.

The Car Free Day is part of the EU initiative “European Mobility Week”, which from the 16th to the 22nd September will see more than 1400 cities in Europe taking part with different events.

Important cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Prague and Budapest have announced numerous initiatives with the aim of drawing awareness to the dangers of toxic air. But the London Car Free Day is by far the largest and more remarkable event which has been confirmed so far.

There will be extensive road closures and restrictions in the City of London, Southwark and Tower Hamlets between 07:00 to 19:00.

London Bridge and Tower Bridge will be closed to general traffic. Roads in the surrounding areas will be extremely busy. There will be significant delays to road journeys.
