Fancy following in the footsteps of the historical figures that inspired Lin Manuel Miranda’s global sensation Hamilton?
Turns out that this self-proclaimed ‘American Musical’ about a Founding Father of the United States has more links to London than you might expect — and you can now buy a beautiful map that outlines them all.
The ‘London Hamiltour’ map is the brainchild of MaxMakesPrints, featuring over 30 west end sites with a connection to characters featured in the show, including Aaron Burr, Angelica Schuyler, Marquis de Lafayette, Thomas Jefferson, John Laurens, General George Washington, Alexander Hamilton himself and — natch — King George III.
The A5 print can be folded into a pocket-sized leaflet so, once lockdown is lifted, you can easily use it to take your own self-guided tour of the capital.
Along the way, you’ll discover the Piccadilly townhouse that Angelica Schuyler lived in when she “sailed away to London”, the theatre where Lafayette charmed the British elite before he joined the revolution, the site of the gunshop where Alexander Hamilton’s infamous duelling pistols were forged, and many more places with a Hamilton connection.
The London Hamiltour Map is available exclusively on Etsy and costs £10 including UK postage and packaging. Click here to get yours.
