Cultural Infrastructure Map

The Mayor has developed London’s first Cultural Infrastructure Map, it brings together new research and information that has previously not existed in one place. It plots the location of cultural infrastructure and enables the user to view it alongside useful contextual data, like transport networks and population growth.

The scale of London's cultural infrastructure means that it is ever changing and evolving and some is difficult to locate. The map provides the best snapshot of information that we have gathered to date and it will continue to evolve, adding new categories and information as it becomes available and as Londoners and organisations add missing cultural infrastructure to it, or inform us about closures. 

What can you do using the map?

Using this tool, you can: 

  • view where cultural infrastructure is
  • look at it alongside transport, planning, audience and demographic data
  • download data for specific geographic areas by using the tools on the right hand side 
  • suggest missing cultural infrastructure by using the tools on the right hand side
  • edit existing cultural infrastructure by clicking on a map entry 
  • understand travel times from existing infrastructure or a proposed development site by clicking on the tools on the right hand side 

To deliver the best browsing experience we recommend not viewing the map in Internet Explorer or on a mobile device.

Some questions you can ask when you view the data

  • do you have clusters of activity that you were previously unaware of?
  • are there unexpected types of cultural infrastructure in your borough?
  • could you build on this by adding key infrastructure to a cluster? 
  • are there types of infrastructure that you don’t have in your borough?
