3.0 out of 5 stars Good as far as it goes, 21 Nov. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Big London Street Atlas (London Street Atlases) (Spiral-bound)
This product is great as far as it goes - the spiral binding allows it to lay flat and the scale is large enough to glance at while driving (which is what I bought it for), however it doesn't quite go all the way out to the M25 ring which may be a pain if you live near the edge of the zone covered as I do. I run out of map to the northwest beyond my homepage and sincerely wish it covered Uxbridge, Northwood, Watford, Bushey and Borehamwood - but it doesn't, and its similarly curtailed all around London; Chingford is in but Loughton is out, Dagenham is in but Romford and Hornchurch are out, Bexley is in but Dartford is out, Chislehurst and Farnborough are half in and Orpington is out, Croydon is mostly in but Purley is out, Carshalton is in, Sutton is cut in half and Ewell is out, Surbiton is in but Esher, Walton on Thames, Weybridge and Chertsey are all out, Ashford is in but Staines is out. You'll know whether these limits are sufficient for your purposes.

Do you get the 'Sut' or the 'ton' bit with this? Great review.

This is very helpful for knowing the limits, but all said and done, this is a LONDON A-Z. Surely there are other maps to cover areas in Surrey, Kent, Essex and the other areas you mention. I live in Bromley (Kent), and although I would like to be included in this map, I do not have a London postcode so I cannot complain.

Really helpful review, especially since I was only going to buy this so I could drive to purley, sutton etc. without getting lost like last time!

It is a London Street Atlas, once upon a time the area of the map only included boroughs that had a London suffix eg London SE9. It was significantly expanded when the GLC was instituted to include Greater London, it is what it says, so why give an excellent map a poor rating because you chose the wrong one. You need the London A-Z Master Atlas that covers everywhere inside the M25.
