Breathe Better London campaign poster
Mayor’s Cleaner Air for London program starts from one simple idea: the smallest changes in your daily routine can make a huge difference by creating incredible ripple effects. Like taking a short walk, instead of taking the car to covert the same distance.
There’s no hard to digest scientific information on the posters. Just common sense.

Royal walk, that Royal Naval College walk. Perfect sky. 24/7
Try this on a sunny Sunday afternoon: walk on the south bank from Putney Bridge to Hammersmith Bridge. Start around 4 pm (in summer, 1 pm in winter) to make the most of the sun. And sunsets. At Hammersmith Bridge cross and stop at a river pub, get some more sun while hugging some zingy blonde ale. When appropriate to leave, bid goodbye and walk on the north bank back to Putney. The sun sets on your right side, and will warm your back. I’m not gonna tell you much about what you’ll see along this rather short but mighty walk. But yes, it’s a story with gardens, forests, new developments, old pubs, palaces, churches, swans, wild ducks, boats and strolling humans. Joy! I mean, enjoy!

You don’t have to be a digital guru to enjoy this exhibition. Au contraire.
I have a scratched ancient generation Nokia, the cheapest Kubik mp3 and the most basic Chromebook. But I still enjoyed whispering to butterflies, playing a radio-piano, growing wings and chasing lasers.
Are you anywhere near Somerset House?
Then make a short detour to visit Return of the Rudeboy
