Gavron puts best foot forward with 'walking maps' for London

  • Comment

London's deputy mayor Nicky Gavron is leading a campaign to change people's perception of central London. She hopes her 'on the ground maps' will encourage people to walk more instead of taking the Underground, and help them plan their routes in London.

Gavron says that most 'people's map of central London is the Tube, ' adding: 'Tourists have no idea that when they're in Leicester Square, Covent Garden is just around the corner. So often journeys in central London are walkable.'

The maps will form connections between transport terminals and create cultural walks. The project forms part of Gavron's broader plans for the city, including the involvement of children in the planning process.
