Books and Maps

With our collection of books and maps, you will be able to learn about life on an Antarctic base, explore several famous expeditions from when Antarctica was first discovered, through to the modern day.  We have visitor guides, historical books and books for children.

Our range of maps developed by the British Antarctic Survey, cover the whole of the Antarctic and will help you plan your trip or study the continent in more detail.


Due to a number of countries cancelling flights to and from Europe, and countries within the EU shutting borders or implementing lockdown, almost all international mail and parcel deliveries are experiencing delays. UK deliveries should not be affected.

Because of this, it will take longer for us to get your order to you. We expect to see delays of up to two to four weeks to some destinations. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this period.
