A livery company of the City of London, with a wide range of talent and achievement, Carmen reflect today's transport industry – the lifeblood of our economy.

They are part of a City-wide fellowship of historic and modern guilds reflecting trades, crafts, industries and professions. Over the millennium, those guilds have moved to meet the needs of the times. The Carmen are no exception.

Carmen raise money to spend it on the deserving and disadvantaged, primarily in education and health; offer support, encouragement and benevolence to those who serve in harm's way in the three armed services; innovate in the world of transport – through debate, discussion and design and actively support and contribute to the City civic.

The oldest transport organisation in the world, the Company focuses on good fellowship to improve all our journeys.
