London’s 600 high streets are alive with potential. Since 2011, the Mayor of London has invested more than £129 million in London’s high streets and town centres, creating jobs and supporting businesses.

The Mayor’s Regeneration team works with organisations and individuals to nurture projects from idea to reality. These initiatives are having a real impact on social interactions and economic opportunities on London's high streets, for example:

  • street scene and wayfinding improvements
  • community education programmes and inspiring events
  • low-cost workspaces to support for small businesses, market traders and young people

These initiatives are also influencing the physical shape and appearance of these places, changing the way they are designed, built and used.

This exhibition gives a flavour of the work of the team since 2011 – in Croydon, Camden, Walthamstow and Tottenham in particular.
