Next time you are passing through a station keep an eye out for a “London Summer 2012” map. It is a similar style to the “Why not Walk it Maps?” we featured previously, but covers most of central London and all the Olympic Park.
The maps feature key landmarks, the locations of Olympics related events (such as London Live) and shops, a selection of interesting museums and also more practical information such as public amenities, police stations and NHS walk in centres. The maps also include 6 discovery trails (round trips) to help explore different areas (such as the City; Spitalfields and Brick Lane; Regent’s Park; and the West End). Transport is also well covered and includes bus routes alongside points of interest to hopefully encourage people to stay above ground (no information on Barclays bikes though*).
Being a map-lover these could be the best (free!) Olympics souvenir I have spotted so far and I expect they will be a useful momento for Londoner’s and visitors alike.
*The cynic in me thinks this may be because Barclays aren’t an official sponsor.
