What people say about London Greenground Map
‘Walker’s Tube Map’ Has Flourished Into Something Beautiful’
– Matt Brown, Londonist
‘I also love the Greenground map, a “tube map of parks” and a prompt for exploration in a city which is 47% green or blue.’
– Jack Cornish, Ramblers
‘If 2020 has reignited anything in us Londoners, it’s got to be a love of putting one foot in front of the other . . . walking is now a way of London life. That’s why we’re buzzing to discover this handy map created by graphic designer Helen Ilus.’
– Laura Richards, TimeOut
‘Now this is cool. Check out the London @GreengroundMap which plots London’s 380 parks as if they were tube stations – the “tube lines” are all possible walks.’
– Heidi Alexander on Twitter, Deputy Mayor of London for Transport
‘A key part of the [National Park City] campaign has been to restyle London as a green city in the maps its residents and tourists use every day. The Greenground Map by Helen Ilus follows the layout of the iconic London tube map but it links green spaces instead of transport hubs.
– Alex Ledsom, Forbes Travel
Helen Ilus put a new twist on London mapping with her delightful “GreengroundMap”, a map of London’s green spaces and how best to navigate between them done in the style of the tube map.
– Steven Feldman, GeoMob Podcast
We’ve been a bit slow to get our hands on a copy of @HelenIlus London Greenground Map but oh, isn’t it wonderful. What a delight!
– London Ramblers on Twitter
I nabbed one of these for my father in law’s birthday last year – it’s totally changed how he sees his home territory of London. Really wonderful work by Helen.

What people say about London Bookground Map
The Bookground Map is the work of Helen Ilus, who previously wowed us with the Greenground Map of London parks and open spaces. It’s clear that Helen has put a huge amount of research and time into this new map, which not only includes 350 libraries, but also provides information about their facilities and how to get between them.
– Matt Brown, Londonist
A work of genius by @HelenIlus who has created a Tube style map of libraries in London. It’s the perfect Christmas present to have in your pocket or framed on your wall? “I hope it will inspire you to discover the amazing London library network in a new way”. @LDNLibraries
