In dire need of a break from doom-scrolling? Colouring-in — the popular children's pastime that's morphed into a legitimate way for grown-ups to practice mindfulness in recent years — might be the way to go.

But don't go looking up adult colouring books just yet: we've found something much better for London culture vultures. Behold — a beautifully-illustrated monochrome map of London, ready for you to make your rainbow-hued mark on.

The London Colouring Map was hand-drawn by artist Cally Lathey over a five-month period and features both iconic landmarks and obscure points of interest, all the way from Cricklewood to Catford.  Legendary pie and mash shops, song lyrics inspired by the city and famous boozers make an appearance, so you can even start planning your post-lockdown trip to the capital as you destress.

What's more, the finished map can become your next piece of wall-art — it's painted on good quality paper and comes with a white border for framing purposes. Just take care to stay within the lines.
