Old Style London Map

In the 1800s, diplomats and merchants from around the world arrived in the port of London and would buy meticulously crafted maps which also served as gifts, ornaments, and elegant tokens of remembrance.

This hand-drawn map took over three years to produce and accurately describes the capital city of London in 2012 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

Designed in England, this old style map accents the romance, wonder, and history found in maps used by explorers, early diplomats and merchants in the 1800s. Our maps are inspired by legendary explorers and cartographers such as Joan Blaeu, Captain James Cook, Joseph Cross, Edward Weller, and Ralph Agas.

Like the folded canvas maps of the 1800s, our map also contains a guide for travellers about local markets, churches, neighbourhoods, and lodgings.

The Grand Map of London is commemorative edition map specially made for visitors attending the XXX Olympiad. Olympians are scattered across London where the events take place. For example, archers in Lord’s Cricket Ground, triathletes in Hyde Park, and rowers on the River Thames.

In addition to being Olympic themed, it accurately accounts for newly developed motorised and horse-drawn carriage roads and buildings such as the Shard.

Our maps are made to enchant anyone who loves history and appreciates art. Some of our top customers include City of London, bookshops, galleries and hotels.

British Tradition

In the 1800s, diplomats and merchants from around the world arrived in the ports of London and would purchase maps from pedlars. Maps were not only very popular but also a crucial tool that kept visitors safe and informed of markets, churches, neighbourhoods, and lodgings.

These meticulously crafted working documents also served as gifts, ornaments, and elegant tokens of remembrance for early travellers. As the city changed, so has the look of its maps – but not ours. Our current day maps have kept the same style true to the originals used in the days of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington.
