London's Towns © NLA

Exploring the important role town centres are playing in accommodating London's population growth, this exhibition showcases the results from our latest Insight Study - showing how they are being reshaped to provide not only great places to live, but also to work, to serve the needs of local communities while supporting London as a whole.

From the evolution of London’s towns over time, to the key areas of future growth and the transport investments that are unlocking them, we explore the multi-faceted role towns must play in the future.

A display of developments, ideas and initiatives showcase the schemes currently underway across outer London - from masterplans, mixed-use buildings, workspaces and public realm improvements, to retail, leisure and community interventions.

A future-gazing section displays the results from our Station Sites Charrette, looking into the potential of station sites across London in supporting growth - exploring conceptual design responses to unlocking these complex sites.
