Swinging while waiting for the bus


I agree with Tim, this is so awesome: A bus stop in London that has a swing set. Ella saw this and started packing her suitcase… She wants to move there. Now.

UPDATE: This is part of Bruno Taylor’s series “Playful Spaces“.

  1. Ha… we’ll have to move to London now!

    (Though I don’t want to be swinging forward with my legs dangling out when the bus comes.)

  2. this is great. does anyone know where exactly this bus stop is?

  3. nice ideea…but is it safe? u need a lot of room extra too!

  4. FUN! It looks like the bus stop near Exmouth Market….

  5. That looks like the stop on the 38 route, um, rosebery avenue?

  6. He stole the idea.
    Check out the swedish “barsky brothers”.
    They (AKAY and PETER) published a book in 2006 “Urban Recreation – Akay & Peter” with pictures and stories for a few of their projects. “City Swings” were one. The streetartists are world-famous for their characteristic poster/sticker styles.
    I loved the idea myself, but barsky brothers started it in 2004


  7. I love ideas that assign a new task to an existing resource. In this case, the task of entertaining the waiting passengers is assigned to the bus stop itself…What else can the busstop do for us?

  8. What an awesome idea! :-)
    There should be more swing sets around – I mean everywhere!! :-)
    Two weeks ago I came across a playground with a swing set – and I really really loved it to “swing” again… very relaxing… maybe this could be an idea for overworked managers…!??! :-)

  9. Hello there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him.
    Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for
