Commuting like it’s 1817 with Audible’s Austen Taxi, An Immersive Experience

To mark the 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, we worked with Audible to launch #AustenTaxi which brought Austen’s era to life for London’s commuters allowing them to ride to work like it’s 1817.

With the tube temperatures set to soar in London this week, Austen Taxi offered commuters at King’s Cross Station a welcome breezy change to the usual stuffy tube, giving them the chance to travel to work in 19th century style and an exclusive first listen to excerpts of Audible’s newly released audio dramatisation of Northanger Abbey.

 

 

As the Austen Taxis travelled through the hectic streets of London passing landmarks such as the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, St Paul’s Cathedral, Smithfields market and the brutalist Barbican gallery, passengers immersed themselves in Austen’s story to mark 200 years since the author’s death. Who doesn’t want your commute narrated by Emma Thompson and an all star cast including Lily Cole, Douglas Booth & Eleanor Purnell?
