Learn more about how we create the finest old maps of the UK.

Create your own custom, unique version of one of the finest old, colour maps of London: C & J Greenwood's 1830 Map of London. The map was originally published in six sheets, based on surveys between 1824 and 1826. The Greenwoods did their own surveys of London - to compete with the Ordnance Survey!

As you can see, by the 1820s much of London north of the river is significantly developed. Westminster, City of London and Finsbury all look very similar to modern day. Southwark too is very dense.

The northern stretches of Lambeth are developed - but it's still fields further south. And Wandsworth hardly exists at all.

By the 1820s a lot of the giant eastern docks are already in place, including the West India Docks and the Grand Surrey Outer Docks. Greenwich, of course, is there. But much of south east London is yet to be developed, such as Deptford, Lewisham and New Cross.

Hyde Park, Green Park and Regents Park all look lovely on this colour map, as do regions around the Thames.

We can zoom in on a few streets around where you live today, or your favourite part of London. There's a LOT of detail on the original 1830 map, so we zoom in really close. It would make a great gift for someone who lives in London, too - or anyone who wants to see what London looked like more than 250 years ago.
