What’s it like? With its simple sign and old-fashioned store front, it’s hard to believe you could easily drop a cool million at The Map House. Don’t worry – you can also spend £20 to £50 on a unique present here. The six tiny galleries of London’s oldest antiquarian map dealer hold the most comprehensive collection of antique maps, globes, prints and posters offered for sale anywhere in the world. And the nicest thing about this place is that anyone interested in old maps – from serious collectors to school boys with a few spare pounds – gets the same attention and respect.
