A couple of years ago Regent Street was filled with vintage London buses, and this coming July, it will happen again, and with a 1927 tube train carriage thrown into the mix.

The festival will stretch all the way from Piccadilly Circus to Oxford Circus Tube stations and is part of ‘Summer Streets’, which sees Regent Street go traffic free every Sunday in July.


Regent Street will be divided into three zones – Past, Present and Future – and will showcase the best in transport inspired design with a host of activities.

As it is more design focused, there will be a range of transport items, from buses to tube trains to design ideas.

Tube geeks — there will be a tube train in the middle of Regent Street.

No so much of MetroLand, but there will be Moquette Land – a showcase of the fabric used across the transport network.

There will also be a number of ‘TED’-style talks on technology and design throughout the day.

The date for your diaries is Sunday 3 July.
