The Map House Of London

    Located in the affluent neighborhood of Knightsbridge, The Map House is as traditional as you might expect of a place that’s home to one of the finest collections of antique maps anywhere in the world. Oak paneling, plush armchairs and regal racing-green carpet offer the historic atmosphere to match the exceptional antiquities on the walls. Established in 1907 and in its current location since 1973, the Map House is a bona fide institution. Having supplied maps of Antarctica to explorer Ernest Shackleton and maps of the Far East to Winston Churchill, it’s fair to say that it has had some distinguished customers over the years. Dealing in all things topography from affordable prints, early German work and Italian copper engraving to 15th Century incunabula maps and 20th Century victorials, the collection is impressive to even the most uneducated eyes. The flamboyant decoration of the colorful 17th Century Dutch maps are worth a visit alone – although for these you’ll need the bank balance of a Russian Oligarch for a price inquiry to be worth your while.Show lessRead more
