London Design Festival: the best bits

The annual celebration of all things design returns to the capital in September. Here’s what you shouldn’t miss at London Design Festival 2019

By Katie McCabe

The London Design Festival is massive. It spans dozens of locations, features a ridiculously long events programme, dozens of installations, workshops and talks and has one clear mission: to prove that our city is the capital of design.

This year is its seventeenth annual celebration and the majority of events take place from September 14-22 2019 (though some of the installations will stick around a bit longer). 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 two ‘Design Routes’, where do you even start? We’ve picked some highlights below so you can craft your ideal visit to London Design Festival 2019.
