Free maps to colour in

Looking for something stress-busting? These maps for colouring in are available as a free PDF download to print at home or use on a digital device app such as Procreate or Photoshop.

Colouring books for kids have been around for years. But fairly recently, it's taken off for adults too - the appeal is a combination of creativity and the dedicated focus which is great for mindfulness and mental health.

The sort of images that work best for adults tend to be highly detailed, but still allow scope for personal choice, and being the Ordnance Survey, we thought... maps! At the bottom of this page you will find links to downloadable maps you can print at home. So sharpen your pencils, find your colouring pens and give it a go. Will you try to recreate an OS map style, invent your own, or go for abstract colours?

You'll find links to printable PDFs below. Show us pictures of your completed artworks on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

Will you create a piece of abstract art, develop your own mapping theme or colour the maps to match the originals? Download and print a copy off from here and then share your results with us!
