TFL London Underground Map 500 Piece Puzzle By Gibsons
* Gift of the Year 2021 WINNER *
We will all remember 2020 as a very strange and challenging year. Those who kept us safe, fed, cared for, and delivered the things we need became our heroes. We discovered a new ‘normal’ and made the best of what we had close to home. To say
We have collaborated with Transport for London, the iconic government body responsible for London's rail networks, including the London Underground, DLR, London Overground and all the trams and buses that travel around the UK’s capital city to produce a series of puzzles and games.
This 500 piece puzzle features the iconic modern day London Underground tube map, which was first designed in 1931 by Henry C Beck and based on circuit diagrams he drew for his day job as an engineer. The sprawling transport system has 270 stations and is made from 250 miles (400 km) of track. No other city is as recognised by its transport system as London. Its red buses, black cabs and Tube trains are known around the world. Every day more than 31 million journeys are made across the network. Made in the UK, this jigsaw is manufactured using the thickest 100% recycled board and FSC approved paper, ensuring your jigsaw puzzle pieces fit perfectly into place. What’s more, the jigsaw is presented in a small, compact box, making it the perfect gift for any puzzle fan!
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.
We have made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know that they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap to reduce our plastic waste.
There is a gloss coating on the box for extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils. Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
