Following the success of our present day London map jigsaw puzzle, we thought it would be interesting to create a 1930’s London Pictorial map puzzle too. Landmarks and places of interest are drawn on the map. The 1000 pieces and detail of this map make it quite a challenge.

This wonderfully detailed historic representation of London in the late 1930's is perfect as a gift for anyone who has an interest in this beautiful city and a who has a passion for jigsaws.

New 2019 Edition GB Road Atlases

New 2019 Edition GB Road Atlases

New 2019 editions of the award winning and popular A-Z Road Atlases have now been released.

These titles are fully revised and updated by our team of cartographers. Information updates are compiled from many sources including Highways England, County Councils, local authorities, developers and OS data.

One of the most important sources of information is from our customers who use our maps regularly and give our team useful information about forthcoming plans.

The advantage of road atlases is that a double page shows a large area, enabling you to get an overview and plan your route, stops on the way or to find an alternative route to the dreaded traffic jams. Have you got a current road atlas in your car?
