This London map base covers a broad swathe of London from Shepherd’s Bush in the west to London City Airport in the east, and from Highbury in the north to Streatham Hill in the south.

It is a superb general purpose, editable map of London, with a wealth of detail including roads, train lines, Tube, DLR, London Overground and Network Rail stations, River Bus piers, borough boundaries, tributaries, canals, parks and major landmarks.

There is a lot of detail on this London map base – it is one of the most complex maps we offer for sale – and we recommend that customers use an advanced vector editing software program such as Adobe Illustrator for editing it (not supplied, see advice on getting a free trial of Illustrator in how to customise).

This is a zoomed section of the London map taken from one of several example PDFs and JPEGs that are supplied with the download. (See full previews above right.)

Using this London map base

As it covers such a large area of London, the map is best output either as a PDF or at poster size, or tiled or zoomed into with a series of smaller images, in order to see the detail and read the road names etc. Several ready-to-use PDFs and JPEGs are supplied as examples in the download package.

You can crop the map, change the colours and add your own details as wanted. The road names can be edited using Adobe Illustrator’s Type on a Path tool, which means the fonts can be substituted and the names shifted along the paths with relative ease.

Other options

Looking for more detail and all the roads named? We also sell a London Street Map, which covers the central area of this map with more detail. We also have a map of Greater London districts, which covers a much bigger area, though with less detail.

Please contact us  if you are interested in an extension to this London map base, e.g. if you want the same level of detail for Hampstead Heath. We have detailed map data for the whole of Greater London, though it does not all fit onto one vector file.

London borough boundaries map
The London boroughs are plotted as both boundary and vector fill layers, so you can choose how to show the boroughs, e.g. in this example they are shown with dotted red boundary lines.
