National Map Centre

National Map Centre has been selling maps since 1860, so we know “our” maps!

We had a shop retailing maps, atlases and guides in Victoria, London and it was described by a well-known author as a perfect place to “lose” an hour of your life dreaming of foreign travels. But a specific on-line retailer is a tough competitor to contend with and the shop closed its doors for the final time in September 2011. The Planning Maps service was operated out of the Victoria shop and we decided to relocate it to Kent, where we had a branch already.

Ordnance Survey Outstanding Achievement Award

The National Map Centre was honoured with the Ordnance Survey Outstanding Achievement Award each year between 2006 and 2008. Then, unfortunately, the awards were discontinued and no-one has offered to revive them yet!
