Have you seen the informative and stunning range of historic map jigsaws?
A historic map would make a beautiful gift for anyone who’s interested in maps. Not only are they interesting and beautiful, they are great fun to do. Each jigsaw puzzle comes with an A3 size guide print.
What’s so special about these historic maps?
These 1000 piece map jigsaws are taken from John Speed’s magnum opus – the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The Atlas was published in 1612 but the individual maps it contains are dated 1610 / 1611. They build on the earlier ground breaking surveys undertaken by the master Elizabethan cartographer Christopher Saxton. They introduce colourful cartouches and town/plans around the map edges to resemble works of art as much as maps. The political history of the time can be traced through the various coats of arms of powerful families used around the borders of the maps.
These individual maps are amongst the most sought after of historic county maps. They are not only informative, as they give a representation of counties in the UK in 1610. They are highly decorative and are fun to complete.

This stunning special edition 1000 piece puzzle features three hugely popular war-time aeroplanes flying over the British countryside. The first plane in the image is the PA474 Lancaster which was famously flown by Wing Commander Guy Gibson during the Dambusters raid of 16-17th May 1943. The other two planes are the Observer Corps EB-Z Spitfire and the Hawker Hurrican MK.I RAG GN-A.
The second puzzle shows the Spitfire MK II RF-M soaring over the Houses of Parliament in London and the Thames. These highly collectible puzzles are perfect for fans of war-time aeroplanes.
These transport 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles are both illustrated by the very talented artist – John Young
This beautifully illustrated puzzle depicts a scene from the early 1940s when Britain was still at War. A busy road shows children playing football in the road and others sword fighting in the local bomb shelter. A mother heads home with her weekly rations but stops for a chat with the local bobby and an army soldier has also stopped for a chat with a young lady. We suspect their conversations are very different!
The second puzzle shows a bustling high street in post war Britain. With Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, a growing economy and sweets no longer rationed, this is an optimistic and lively scene. The image illustrates the community spirit found on the high streets of Britain during this special time.
These nostalgic 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles have been illustrated by the very talented artist – Kevin Walsh.

Have you seen the New Waddingtons Christmas Puzzle for 2016? It’s 1000 piece and features Father Christmas making his deliveries. This lovely jigsaw is called Christmas Delivery. It’s just come into our warehouse and we’ve all fallen in love with it.
Waddingtons Christmas Jigsaw Puzzle for 2016 – LIMITED EDITION
On Christmas Eve, Father Christmas makes his deliveries across the world. Every child tries to catch Father Christmas making his delivery, but most fall asleep before he comes. Two excited children have managed to stay awake and hide at the top of the stairs to catch a glimpse of the Santa Claus. They watch as he leaves a pile of gifts for all the family and then disappears into the night with his reindeer who you can see peeking through the door.
This Waddington Christmas Jigsaw Puzzle is packed with hidden details. Can you spot the references to the 12 days of Christmas in this puzzle? Can you find the calling birds? The French Hens? or even FIVE GOOOOLD RINGS? (you can’t say that without singing it!)
