Stanford's of London

Want to see the biggest map store in the world?

Visit London, and steps from Covent Garden you'll find Stanford's.

They celebrated their 150th anniversary in 2003 with a total refit of the main store (they also have a location in Bristol and an excellent online store).

One of the unique features of the main store is that the floor tiles comprise enlarged images of maps.

The lower floor has an XYZ street map of London, the top floor has our map of Everest, the ceiling has our Milky Way map, and the main floor features our Classic World Map, pictured below.

Stanford's is simply a map-lover's paradise!
