8 UK Maps to Help You Discover New Places

8 UK Maps to Help You Discover New Places

The United Kingdom has many beautiful landscapes and historic sites that are worth visiting. That’s why we’ve chosen eight UK maps that really help you discover new places, show where each place is located and highlight why they belong on your itinerary.

The Snowdon OS Map from SplashMaps

The Best National Parks in England, Wales & Scotland.

Trail checking in the Lakes (literally!)

The United Kingdom is home to some amazing national parks. In England, Wales and Scotland these include the Lake District, Snowdonia, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Northumberland, Yorkshire Dales, Peak District, and Brecon Beacons. Each one offers something different from the other. For example, the Lake District is known for its lakes and mountains while the Yorkshire Dales is known for its unique geology, rolling hills and valleys. The Peak District National Park draws you in with its dramatic scenery, such as the Derbyshire Peaks, and the Brecon Beacons National Park is home to the formidable military training grounds around the Pen-y-Fan mountain.

Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty

But with so many areas of outstanding natural beauty beyond these parks, we’ve made our collection of 8 UK maps to help you discover new places.

SplashMap of the South Downs in the Summer Crops

Collected by Ordnance Survey

These maps from SplashMaps are carefully selected and re-created from data collected by the Ordnance Survey. Long distance challenge maps are reproduced from Harvey Maps’ outstanding long-distance series. Each map shows the essential detail of the park, the type of terrain, and the main attractions. For example, contours, car parks, viewing points, visitor attractions, trails and their designations and even scree and rock detailing.

Whatever the weather when you started, you can experience all 4 seasons between base and peak.  The Toggle Toob map provides guidance as a map and doubles up as a neck warmer, balaclava or even added UV protection, perhaps worn under an MTB helmet. Like all our products, this is a serious and navigable map, produced to scale and ready to adventure!

Map 2: Long Distance trail UK maps, South Downs Way

SplashMaps’ Harvey Map of the South Downs Way

The South Downs Way is part of our UK Maps series covering the best Long Distance trails (often National Trails). Long distance trails may be a lifetime experience for you, or could be another in the collection for others. Either way, these maps contain useful information such as the different walking and cycling trails, water stops, translations for key infrastructure and emergency use. Amazingly long distances are achieved on a handy sized map thanks to some clever map design from Harvey Maps. For example, the South Downs Way is over 100 miles, yet a highly detailed map (2.5cm = 1km!) is achieved on a map that rolls-up to the size of a sock!
