OS Explorer Map - classic 1:25 000 scale map
With its 4 cm to 1 km (2½ inches to 1 mile) scale, the OS Explorer Map series has been adopted by many individuals and organisations including walkers, cyclists, horse riders, climbers and sports enthusiasts.
Every part of England, Scotland and Wales is covered by 403 maps that include National Trails, Recreational Paths, picnic areas, viewpoints and selected places of interest. In addition, there’s Rights of Way information for England and Wales.
OS Explorer Active Map- waterproof and durable maps
The OS Explorer Map - Active series contains the same mapping as the standard OS Explorer Map series, but the maps are treated with a lightweight protective plastic coating. As well as making them more durable in wet and muddy conditions, the encapsulated Active maps can also be written on with washable ink, making it practical to draw or highlight favourite routes and points of interest to wipe clean afterwards.
OS Explorer Map - bundles
We also offer map bundles; a collection of maps covering a specific geographic area grouped together. These carry a discount of 20% over buying individial OS Explorer or OS Explorer Active maps for the same area.
OS Explorer Custom Made - choose your own map area
OS Custom Made maps enable you to create your own bespoke OS Explorer Map centred on a favourite beauty spot, holiday haunt or other memorable location. A unique map with your own title and substitle is something very different, and is also a wonderful gift idea.
