To provide Londoners with a coherent wayfinding system, the Legible London designers have broken the city down into three key spatial hierarchies:
Areas: ‘broad areas of the city’ such as the West End;
Villages: ‘commonly used names’ which Londoners use to quickly connect one part of the city to another;
Neighbourhoods: there are several neighbourhoods in each village.
