Expand Theme infomation Expand Theme information

Londoners are very fortunate in having a large number of green open spaces, where they can escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Many of these were the former grounds of large houses or royal parks, whilst others were specially created as London expanded. The River Thames also offers Londoners a variety of day trips. Further outdoor attractions include London's public sculpture and historic sites like Highgate Cemetery. All these open air destinations have been promoted by London Transport posters.

> The Thames

Expand Sub-theme infomation Expand Theme information

The River Thames has always offered Londoners a variety of day trip destinations. London Transport posters have subsequently marketed the river in a number of ways. The depiction of a bustling port celebrates the river's historic importance as an artery and hive of industry and commerce. Picturesque scenes have publicised the river's more tranquil reaches and historic sites. Recent posters, depicting the South Bank, have promoted the Thames as a site for culture and entertainment.
