Screw the tube, you can ride to work in a unicorn-drawn carriage this week

Isabelle Aron

Can't face squeezing into a sweaty tube carriage in rush hour tomorrow morning? Us neither. Thankfully, you can ditch the tube this week and commute to work in a unicorn-drawn carriage instead. This is not a drill. Okay, they're really horses dressed up like unicorns, but who cares? It's got to be better than the Central line.

The carriages, or 'unicabs' as they're being called, will be available to flag down between 7am and 11am around Monument station on October 26, Southwark station on October 27 and Canary Wharf station on October 28. It's being organised by mobile network Three, and if you want to guarantee a ride in one of these fancy carriages, just tweet @ThreeUK or email them to book your ride and upgrade your commute.

Various locations. October 26–October 28. Free.
