Britain is home to spectacular array of heritage sites, but where do you start when planning a trip to see them? Discover Britain is your guide to the nation’s finest historic attractions from our royal palaces, stately homes and castles and our cities towns and villages, to our ancient and literary landscapes and our industrial and maritime wonders. Packed with news, features and inspiration for great days out, Discover Britain has everything you need to plan a holiday at home or learn about the events that have shaped the British Isles.
Discover Britain is created by a passionate team that are dedicated to bringing you news and features on Britain’s finest heritage sites. Here are three reasons why I love working on the magazine:
1. This magazine is totally unique: there is no other historic travel magazine which is focused entirely on Britain’s history and heritage sites.
2. The best things are closest to home: many people spent their lives and a small fortune travelling the world in search of exotic destinations but then forget to explore their own doorstep. The British Isles are home to many of the world’s most spectacular heritage sites, beautiful towns and villages and historic cities, coast and countryside - you just need to know where to look! We’ve made it our mission to discover the hidden gems as well as the well known heritage sites.
3. We get to work with many of Britain’s best photographers and journalists: every issue features the writing of people who have got a passion for Britain’s heritage sites, from curators and historians with specialist knowledge of a specific period of history or historic site, to accomplished authors and travel journalists with a passion for Britain’s most beautiful places. All features are illustrated with beautiful photography from both the past and the present day.

"Discover Britain magazine has made fascinating and interesting reading for me for many years. I would dearly love to be able to visit and tour a different part of the U.K. every year but since that is not possible, your magazine is the next best thing to being there." Jean McGinley, California, USA
"What a breath of good (British) fresh air your magazine is, focussing on the positive and cheery. I have just been introduced to Heritage by the owner of a local antique-china shop and tearooms as 'something nice to read while having my Devonshire tea'. How right she was!" Jan Anderson, Melbourne, Australia
