Britain's Great Place Names

What is Great Britain truly great for? A good many things, you might say... pedantry, pomposity and of course our world-class place names. Discover and celebrate the very best of them with this, our Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names

Looking classy from afar but far from classy up close, this vintage style wall map celebrates over 2,000 of Britain's funniest, rudest and quirkiest-sounding (but completely real) place names. From Golden Balls (Oxfordshire) to Laughter Hole (Devon) via Little Cockup (Cumbria), this unique wall map will send you on a chortlesome journey around Great Britain.

Highlights include:

Galloping Bottom (Somerset)
Great Snoring (Norfolk)
Lusty Glaze (Cornwall)
Frolic (Northumberland)
Twatt (we're blessed with not just one but two of these, in Orkney and Shetland)

Disguised as a classic vintage map from across the room, it's guaranteed to cause the odd mouthful of tea (or teeth) to be spat out upon closer inspection.

Size: A1 33.1" x 23.4" (84.1 x 59.4 cm).

Printed lithographically in Great Britain on 150 gsm uncoated paper for that classy, vintage look. Rolled in tissue paper and sent in a sturdy cardboard tube (with no paperwork inside).
