This editable and scalable river map base of the British Isles is one of our favourites! It covers all the main rivers of Britain and Ireland. Four styles in PDF and JPEG format are included in the download package, alongside editable vector formats in Adobe Illustrator and SVG. You can easily crop the map if you want to focus on just Ireland or the UK or the rivers of Scotland, England or Wales. Customers who use Illustrator or other vector editing software can customise all the colours and fonts without limitations.

We’ve helpfully named hundreds of rivers, lakes, bays and firths on the map, along with towns and geographical areas to help with orientation. Use this map base for water-themed projects, such as the top places for fishing, boating or water sports in the British Isles, or if you’re illustrating a hydrographic study.
