What is Car Free Day?

The first British Car Free Day was held in 1994 in Bath and has expanded  across the country, with many other large towns and cities getting involved.

Car Free Day was first introduced to show people how short trips in cities can often be reached more quickly by bike or by bus, rather than using a car.

The challenge is to ditch your car for the day and use sustainable modes of transport instead: like walking, cycling and catching the bus.

There are lots of places to visit and things to do, whether it's for families, groups of friends or couples - or you just want some time out on your own. 

World Car Free Day is Wednesday 22nd September 2021.
