Three ways to find the music in the streets

 

 

3ways

A fold out map and guide

 

Small enough to carry around in a back pocket yet packed full of facts on all the top music sites.

The London Music Map fold out map and guide details the locations of over 65 sites of special musical interest in central London, including where iconic album cover photographs were taken, the greatest live music venues and recording studios, where legendary music idols where born, lived and even where they died.

A stunning art print

 

The London Music Map art print is an exciting visual representation of London’s colourful music history.

Whilst some license has been taken with geographic locations, no stone has been left unturned when it comes to historical detail. Covering a period that spans from the early 1960s to the late 1990s, this beautiful piece of art gives, at a glance, a fantastic impression of just how special London’s music scene is and why people love it so much.

A website

 

The London Music Map website is the place to go to find out even more about London's music history, to see the products we create and learn about the people behind them.

We hope to one day be able to present an interactive map of London showing all the information contained on our printed products, but in the mean time, check back often as we add more fascinating facts all the time and update our range of cool, music map-related merchandise.
