Using this site
Searching for a product
Using the search box at the top of every page you can enter the name of a city, town or village and see a list of products matching your search. To find a product by location, we use our Great Britain Road Atlas index of over 30,000 places to give accurate results. You can also search by product title, or ISBN number. This number can be found on the back cover of most printed publications. If you have an older version of one of our maps then simply enter the old ISBN and the search results will show the current version (or the most recent version if it's been discontinued).
To perform a more specific search, you can use the product filters would on the left hand side of most pages. Here you can filter by category, brand, format and specfic product range as well as geographically by continent, country or region.
