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.

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.

 

All of my maps are well packaged and sent in a rugged tube if unframed, or surrounded by foam if framed.

I try to send out all maps within 1 or 2 days of receiving your order, though some products (like face masks or mugs) can take longer to make.

If you select the free worldwide shipping option, you can usually expect to receive your map around 10 days after you order. It may be faster or slower, depending on the impact of coronavirus in your country.

If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order will be sent by courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce) and will usually arrive in 2-3 days.

Customers in the US, Australia and Canada: Your map will be sent from a printer or framer in your country, which means you'll get your map sooner, you won't pay import duties, and we'll put less CO2 into the atmosphere. I have worked with some great printers and framers around the world for years - so don't worry, your map will still look amazing!

My maps are extremely high quality reproductions of original maps.

I source original, extremely rare maps from libraries, auction houses and private collections around the world, restore them at my London workshop, and then use specialist giclée inks and printers to create beautiful maps that look even better than the original.

My maps are printed on thick matte (not glossy) paper that feels high quality. In technical terms the paper weight/thickness is 10mil/190gsm. It's perfect for framing.

Please contact me if you're looking for a print on canvas or cotton rag.
