  • These detailed maps maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction. The London maps link up with those for Middlesex to form a major series for the Greater London area. They are available through our On-line Mapshop

  • Here are the details of maps for Holborn & City of London:

  • London Sheet 62.1 Holborn, The City & The Strand 1873 - published 1987, 2nd Edition 2017; intro by Pamela Taylor. ISBN.978-1-78721-050-9

    We have published three versions of this map, showing how the area developed across the years. The maps each cover the same area of central London, stretching from the British Museum eastward to Guildhall, and from Clerkenwell Road southward to Waterloo Bridge. The features on these crowded maps are too many to be listed, but include Covent Garden, Lincoln's Inn Fields; Blackfriars, Ludgate Hill, Holborn Viaduct and Aldersgate stations; Southwark and Blackfriars Bridges; part of Bloomsbury; Fleet Street, The Strand, Somerset House, St Paul's Cathedral, The Temple, Smithfield, Cheapside and much more.

    These busy maps are essential for any historian of London. Bear in mind, however, that they are very crowded; for many parts of the area larger scale maps are also available in our London Large Scale Series.

    The map links up with London Sheets 50 Clerkenwell to the north, 61 West End to the west, 63 Whitechapel to the east, and 76 Waterloo to the south.
