Mapping London

Sport posters

This display maps London through posters. From north to south and east to west, these posters present and promote some of the many exciting places and attractions that London has to offer. 

For well over 100 years, transport posters have highlighted London’s cultural landmarks, fine architecture and fantastic open spaces. Passengers have been encouraged and inspired to explore the city and beyond, with destinations made accessible through London’s public transport network.
