The Map Shop was established in 1975 by Tony Atkinson who began selling maps as a hobby, and has now developed into a successful international business selling and distributing maps world-wide.

The Map Shop is situated in Upton upon Severn, a small picturesque riverside town in the Heart of England. From these premises we offer both a counter and mail order service.

The Map Shop carries one of the largest inventories of maps and travel guides in the world with over 55,000 items in stock. The business is the UK agent for the official survey authorities for most of Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, USA and many more. We are also an Ordnance Survey® Mapping Outlet.
Making A Purchase Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

We accept credit & Debit card payments. If you are shopping from North America or anywhere else, place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to US Dollars or your own currency.

When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice.
