OS Maps Web
Find Your Next Adventure

We’re excited to announce the launch of a new and improved version of OS Maps Web.

Since OS Maps launched 6 years ago, millions of people have used it to plan their outdoor adventures; and now we’re making it easier than ever to explore Great Britain and beyond.

You’ll see some exciting updates, improvements and new features to explore; all with the aim of making OS Maps your guide in the great outdoors and helping more people get outside more often.
