Each September, London hosts the most thrilling and innovative design festival in the world.Use our London trip planner to add The London Design Festival and other attractions to your London vacation plans.
Over nine packed days there are events taking place right across London. Our many Partner organisations put on a dazzling variety of events that show the richness and depth of the design activity that takes place in and beyond the capital. To that we add a series of major events at the world's greatest design museum, the V&A, as well as our own high profile Landmark Projects in some of London's best loved landmarks.
Navigating all this activity can appear daunting at first. With over 500 events in total, there's more than any single person could see. We suggest you spend some time planning your visit before you set off.
