Old Ordnance Survey Maps of London

  • This is our largest and most popular series, a massive group of over 500 maps covering the London area. In many cases we have published maps in 2, 3 or even 4 different editions, showing an area at different dates, typically 1872, 1894 and 1914. This makes it possible to put the maps side by side and see how the area changed over those years.
  • The following Maps are highly detailed, taken from the 1/2500 plans and reprinted at about 14 inches to the mile. Each includes an introduction to the history of that area. All maps are available through our On-line Mapshop.
  • London maps in Essex, Kent and Surrey are not listed here. For them go to the London-in-Essex, London-in-Surrey, Bexley or Bromley pages.
  • We have provided a series of Index Maps for most of the London maps. Information pages are also available for each individual map; simply follow the links below.

  • Most maps in the Godfrey Edition are taken from the 25 inch to the mile map and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. For a full list of English maps, return to the England page.
  • You can order maps direct from our On-line Mapshop. They are also available from various local outlets.
