Hand-Drawn Maps of London: Angel To Bankside

Hand-Drawn Maps of London: Angel To Bankside


Apologies, but our meagre column width means you'll have to open this PDF to fully appreciate this map.

This beautiful hand-drawn map and guided walk was put together by Léa Teuscher for her blog Londres Calling, which we believe might be French for 'London Calling'. We thoroughly approve of the route, which passes through some of the most intriguing parts of London (Postman's Park, the Museum of London, St Bart's and Smithfield, and...erm, City University). Très bon, as we believe they say in France.

Please send your own hand-drawn maps of London to tips@londonist.com. The best will be featured in the Museum of London's Big Draw event in October, and possible future exhibitions.

Really, really cool map. Very well done (and informative, to boot)! I might print this up and walk the route this weekend.

Only (slight) criticism is "Clothes Fair" should be "Cloth Fair" I believe. Of course, I could also be wrong.


This is absolutely fantastic.

My favourite post on the blog is "La Network railcard"

"Vous vivez à Londres, n'avez pas de voiture, et avez envie de partir au vert ou à la mer sans dépenser la moitié de votre salaire en billets de train? Ce qu'il vous faut c'est la Network railcard."

I'm always wanting to partir au vert or à la mer, and I certainly don't want to dépenser la moitié de mon salaire en billets de train, so la Network Railcard is perfect.
