Londoners can catch a unicorn to work this week

For two days, Londoners can swap their stuffy tube ride and make a royal entrance to work on a magical unicorn instead.

According to The Metro, the ‘unicabs’ will be available to commuters from various hotspots across London, including Monument, Southwark and Canary Wharf, on Friday 28 October (and on the Wednesday just gone).

The rainbow-coloured carriages driven by unicorns – well, horses with painted hooves, coloured hair and horns – can seat up to four commuters.

The initiative is part of a #MagicTogether campaign set up by the mobile networks Three and ZTE. Inside each carriage are the new ZTE Blade V7 phone so those taking the unicab can capture the moment their commute was blessed by a magic wand.

Michelle Clarke from Shoreditch, London, said: "I usually get the tube to work but this morning I hopped on a unicorn parked outside my usual tube station, Bank – it was definitely an experience I won’t forget in a hurry, even if I did get a few strange looks from passers by!"
