Summer in the city


The summer months bring with them warmer weather, longer days and an increase in tourists, making Out-of-Home (OOH) the right platform to reach audiences who are out and about more than ever in our key European capitals.

London
Using our very own audience behavioural insight tool (Abi), we analysed mobile network and web behaviour data to learn more about travel patterns across London Underground. We have identified an increase in the concentration of international tourists across  London Underground, zone 1. 

The five busiest London Underground stations in zone 1 in the summer months are Victoria, Paddington, King’s Cross St. Pancras, Oxford Circus and South Kensington. These London Underground stations connect London’s city centre with main London airports, busiest shopping locations and cultural attractions. 
• On average, 15 million international travellers are using London Underground’s zone 1 every month! Our analysis found the top nationalities were Italian, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, American, Swedish, Irish, Norwegian and Chinese.

London Underground presents a great platform for brands, allowing many opportunities to reach this valuable international audience on the move during summer.
