Get back into the City with Culture Mile

Along with everyone else, we’re following ever-evolving updates regarding COVID-19.

Our focus is to monitor and collect information about how the virus, and surrounding concerns, are affecting the Culture Mile area specifically. We will organise and share relevant information from the Government, hospitality and cultural organisations in this uncertain and rapidly-changing context.

On this page you can find out about: 

  • Attractions within Culture Mile that are open to those able to visit safely 
  • Getting around London safely 
  • What safety precautions you should take whilst travelling
  • Less busy routes for cycling and walking
  • Social distancing measures

Let's work towards a COVID-safe Culture Mile together, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
