Discover London

A Chelsea Pensioner strolling down King's Road, an apron-clad butcher at Borough Market, a batsman taking guard at the Oval - they're all to be found on the colourful spread of the London Children's Map. Covering the area from Primrose Hill and Victoria Park to Battersea Park and the Old Kent Road, the map uses bold lettering, simplified road patterns and friendly drawings to present the capital as a place to visit and explore.

It can be "read" without fully developed literacy skills, putting travelling decisions into children's hands. London Children's Map costs pound;2.95 from Guy Fox and many tourist venues.
