Good Journey is a new initiative to help more people visit attractions by train, bus, bike and foot. The website Goodjourney.org.uk gives travel directions to everywhere from art centres to zoos, as well as inspiration for car-free days out. Good Journey would love to hear about any tourist attractions, leisure venues or destinations which would like to welcome more car-free visitors.
