Just my luck! I've just spent £30 good English pounds on buying their damned OS geological maps in paper format. Blast! Still, I guess they'd make quite decorative picnic blankets.

For reference, here is a link to the BGS maps portal.

They also have a couple of good apps for your smartphone - here is the standard Android one. There is also a 3D version.
