Horse and Cart London

Leave your Oyster card at home – for one day only, you can get a horse and cart to carry you on your way through London.

Audible are celebrating the launch of their new audio drama, Northanger Abbey, by letting Londoners travel like it’s 1817.

On the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, Audible will be releasing an all-star dramatisation of the light-hearted gothic satire and inviting guests to commute like it’s 1817 in an authentic period carriage.

It may not be as fast as the tube, but you will instead be treated to an exclusive first-listen of audio excerpts of Northanger Abbey which stars Emma Thomson, Douglas Booth, Ella Purnell, Eleanor Tomlinson and Jeremy Vine.
