What are the best maps to buy?

It depends what you’re doing. In the UK, the Ordnance Survey produces two scales of map useful to a visitor:

1:25,000 Explorer

This is the most detailed map which shows things like walls and streams. If you’re walking or mountain biking, this is the best scale to take with you.

1:50,000 Landranger

If you’re on the bus, driving around or road cycling, this scale shows roads, villages and towns.
