Ordnance Survey Map printer friendly
Sorry, OS Landranger (1:50K) mapping only, as printing is against the T&C's for OS Explorer (1:25K) mapping.
You can print out OS Explorer mapping from the Ordnance Survey Get-a-Map website, which costs about £20 a year.
Choose the map scale.
The higher the scale, the greater the detail, but the more pages to print.
The advanced option uses less paper, but is harder to print successfully. If you try it, check that the route at the end of each page continues on the next one without a gap.
In your browser's Print Preview dialogue, it may help to try:
- Scaling : 50% (to scale it to fit on to an A4 page). This seems to be done automatically in newer version of Chrome.
- Margins : none/minimum
Print the maps in groups of 10
Wait for the map tiles to load.
Print this group of maps
Only the maps get printed (not the surrounding text). 1 map per A4 page. Please let us know if you have any problems
