World Carfree Day

September 22 is designated each year as World Carfree Day. Every year, road closures and other events are organised in towns and cities across the world, including London.

By closing a road to motor traffic for the day, we get a glimpse of how much everyone's quality of life would be improved with less noise and air pollution. The road becomes a lively, convivial spot to spend the day, with on-street cafes, performances and other fun activities instead of the usual streams of traffic.

Carfree Day events are published on this website a few weeks in advance of 22 September each year.
