We've created a beautiful folded map of London's great outdoors. Crowdfunded by 308 backers and made for us by Urban Good CIC the massive map includes all of the capital’s 3,000 parks plus woodlands, playing fields, nature reserves, city farms, rivers, canals and all the spaces that contribute to London’s landscape.
Featured on BBC Countryfile’s special Cities episode, the map is your guide to exploring the capital. Some of the most iconic walks through and around London are drawn, such as the London Loop and Capital Ring, along with symbols marking places to swim outdoors, climb hills, pitch a tent or go kayaking. It even shows front and back gardens, but not any buildings!
From October 2nd, Urban Good will be posting 1,000 free maps (with a small charge to cover postage and handling costs) to the first lucky people to place orders on their website. Join our newsletter to be notified when more copies become available.
The making of the map
Urban Good have been working with us to create a really inspiring map that revels how London is not just a city, but an urban landscape too.
We've created the best printed public map for planning adventures in London’s great outdoors. The map includes the capital's green and blue space, hills and valleys, parks and commons, walks and public transport and many outdoor activities like kayaking and barbecuing. Greenspace Information for Greater London CIC (GiGL) have provided many of the data on display along with statistics for the Atlas on the read of the map. Further essential data was provided by Ordnance Survey.
