About Bensons range of street plans of central London:
The plans offer the clearest, most accurate and most informative street mapping of the capital, particularly for those who wish to explore London on foot. The same style of presentation of the street network is used in different titles with varying degree of detail. Excellent placing of names and the use of colours or symbols enable the publishers to provide a wealth of information whilst retaining the clarity of small detail: streets with bus services, Underground/railway stations and riverboat piers, prime shopping areas, places of entertainment and main services, selected hotels and pubs, etc. The capital’s main sights are prominently highlighted and other important buildings are named.
For drivers the maps indicate main traffic routes and show entry restrictions for motorized traffic and car parks. One way streets are not marked.
For those exploring London on foot the Bensons plans offer information not often found on other street maps: small passages, steps or stairways, foot access onto bridges from streets below them, etc.
Additional panels, varying from title to title, provide more information: enlargements of the West End and the City, bus routes, places of entertainment, descriptions of sights, sightseeing walks, a shopping guide, etc.
For more information please see the individual description. The most detailed coverage is offered by the London Street Map.
