Hand-Drawn Maps of London: Markets


Having seen our exhibition of hand-drawn maps at the Museum of London, visitor Lauren Pegg was inspired to put together this map of her favourite markets. The picture shows characteristic items from each area: antiquey things from Portobello, musicy things from Brixton, flowery things from Columbia Road and foody things in Borough.

Print it out and give it to the little ones for an educational colouring-in activity. Better yet, get your own crayons out and draw us your own map of London. We’re hoping to put on another exhibition next year, so we’re on the lookout for new maps. Take a look at some of the entries below for inspiration.
