Town Centre Maps

town-centre-mapsTown Centre Maps can provide a dual role for a vibrant town centre. Primarily you may think of a street display board where the map will provide useful location information to a visitor to the town, but also perhaps more importantly a well-crafted promotional map can visually display your own diverse and distinctive environment. These maps can highlight not only the retail environment but also the evening and night economies that encourage income from tourism, visitors and leisure.


We offer a bespoke service to create clear town centre maps. Attractive promotional mapping which highlights key places of interest, shops and landmarks to encourage more visitors to your town or city centre. We design and adapt maps to provide the size, styling and colours you need, and supply the maps in a range of formats (star folds maps, tear off pads, mini maps, street display boards etc).


Our many Town Centre customers are located all over the country, and have a range of different mappings needs. We offer a variety of styles of town centre maps, including 3D building illustrations, and are always available to advise on your project from planning and design, through print, to the finished map.

Our customers include TfL, Southampton, Peterborough and Atkins. When working with Oxford Cartographers one of our clients said:

They have excellent and creative suggestions on layout, colour schemes and advertising placements, helping to us to create a visually appealing and effective marketing product. Finally, their costs are reasonable and their production is fast and accurate, even on larger print runs. I am very happy to recommend Oxford Cartographers

Our Products

titlerKingston Upon Thames -2D map


Our mapping can be produced in 2D or 3D, highlighting key shops, places of interest and other landmarks given a clean graphical image or your town or city centre.

After creating a town centre map for Kingston – Upon- Thames, we adapted it to show the Olympic men’s cycle road race. This new map was handed out to visitors on the day showing them the route of the race and where to find shops and parking.

titlerLondon - Wayfinding


Using our experience over years of town and city mapping, we identify key traffic routes and nodes, and design and install mapping and way-finding solutions. Through detailed observation and site visits we assess, define and predict problems encountered when navigating in a built environment. People tend to use landmarks, road and paths to help orient themselves and to navigate through the built landscape. Good signage and effective, clear mapping will improve navigation.

Kim Hollylee – Bishop’s Stortford Town Council

“From my point of view Oxford Cartographers were very helpful, prompt in their replies and as someone who had never been involved in this type of publication before, I was delighted to be able to speak to you so easily on the phone. We currently use the map in our Accommodation Guide and as a handout to visitors to the Tourist Information Centre.”

titlerRedruth Town Council - 3D highlight map


Lee Dunkley – Redruth Town Council

“As part of our marketing push in Redruth we underwent a branding exercise and invested in town development. A map played a big part in communicating our message to prospective visitors, and needed to be attractive and welcoming, not just an interface for information. Oxford Cartographers were great to work with, for us we were a little unsure as to what our end product needed to look like, but the professionals at Oxford helped us get what resulted in a fantastic bespoke product. We use the maps on boards at major welcome points in the town station. The beautifully animated 3D section of the map, complete with added extras like trains and cars, has enabled us to produce excellent quality leaflets which helps us to further our “brand” and bring people into town. We also use the map on our new website and our Visit Redruth app.”
