Stunning Free Vintage London Maps To Download

Free Printable Gorgeous Vintage London Maps

London is one of my favourite cities so I thought I’d source fabulous vintage London maps to share.
 
 
My father is from London and even though I was bought up in Hong Kong every few years I would visit my grandparents in London. They would take me to all the fabulous parks especially Regents Park for the zoo. We would also visit all the fabulous free museums in South Kensington. I ended up going to University in London and now only live 50 miles north of the Capital. I try to visit the city at least once a month and love it everytime I do.
 
 
It’s not just me that is smitten with London according to wiki “London is often regarded as a world cultural capital. It is the world’s most-visited city as measured by international arrivals and has the world’s largest city airport system measured by passenger traffic.”

THE VINTAGE LONDON MAPS

 

  1. Mogg Pocket or Case Map of London 1806

     
    An extraordinary first edition example of Edward Mogg’s important 1806 case map of London, England. Covers the central part of London from Kensington to Greenwich and the East India Docks. Mogg’s map of London offers extraordinary and beautifully engraved detail throughout noting all streets, parks, and numerous important buildings. The downtown area consumed by the London fire of 1666 is highlighted in red.
     
    This is actually one of my favourite maps of London. With the meranding Thames river in the centre, it reminds me of the title sequence of the long running soap “Eastenders” set in the Eastend of London.

  3. 1896 Bacons Pocket Map of the Environs of London

     
    Another great vintage pocket map of London this one includes the suburbs. The map runs from Rickmansworth in the northwest to Keveldon Hatch in the northeast. It then extends south to Whitewater Common and Ightham Common. Again there is great detail on the map, noting manors, mills, roads, towns, forests, parks, castles, railways, cemeteries and bridges.

  4. 1920 Bacons Pocket Map of London Showing the Underground Railway

     
    This is a fascinating map of London showing the Underground Railway too. Obviously some of the underground lines had not been built when this map was published. Such as the Victoria and Jubilee line. Also some of the stations on the map no longer exist.

  10. 1830 Map of Regents Park London

     
    I love this map of Regents Park, the colours are lovely. The map was made 2 years after Regents Park Zoo (London Zoo) opened in 1828. Regents Park is my favourite London park it brings back lots of childhood memories.

  14. Smith & Sons 1910 Tape Indicator Map of London

     
    This is an unusual large folding pocket map of London. Attached to this map of the City of London is a tape measure and street guide for identifying specific locations and distances. I think this would look fabulous framed and on the wall.
