The London Design Festival spans dozens of locations, features a ridiculously long events programme, includes hundreds of exhibits and has one clear mission: to prove that our city is the capital of design. This year is its sixteenth annual celebration and the majority of events take place from September 15-23 2018. It’s the ultimate chance to discover design and craft at its very best. But, with some mighty London museums at its helm, 11 different 'Design Districts’, five ‘Design Destinations’ across town, and three ‘Design Routes’, where do you even start? We’ve picked some highlights below so you can craft your ideal visit to London Design Festival 2018.
