CUSTOM Greenwood's Map of London 1830 - square, portrait or landscape
Dispatches in 1-2 days
Handmade to order
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.
Tell us about your custom map of London when you place your order. We will send you a draft version of the map before we print it, to make sure it's exactly right.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
