Traveller Magazine

The UK's longest-running travel magazine

Traveller Magazine: Past Issues

Content

Traveller magazine is the UK's longest-running travel magazine; since 1970 it has reported on the real experience of travelling the world, publishing articles by today's leading explorers, adventurers, photographers and travel writers, as well as tips and opinions from our destination specialists.

Traveller Magazine - Vol 51 No 2 2021

In the latest issue of Traveller, Wexas Honorary President Colin Thubron takes us along the Amur River, while Jonathan Scott, another Honorary President, immerses us in the wonder of wildlife in a series of stunning images. We navigate the deserts of Arizona with the help of some striking signage, wander down the streets of New York and take a train ride through some of Canada’s most staggering scenery, before visiting Bahama for a party. The Maldives offers more serene island pleasures, Madeira a mix of fun in Funchal and moments of mountaintop solitude. Meanwhile Procida – the first island to be designated Italian Capital of Culture for 2022 – provides a beguiling picture of perfect seaside village life. You’ll also find contrasting yet equally compelling escapes in Seville and Scandinavia, and a series of stunning infinity pools located all over the world. Dive in!

Traveller Magazine - Vol 51 No 1 2021

The first Traveller Magazine of 2021 is tinged with sadness following the recent passing of publisher, and Wexas founder and chairman, Dr Ian Wilson. Traveller was Ian's pride and joy, and we pay tribute to him in this issue. As he would have wanted, we also celebrate some of the many places that we hope will soon open up to us again, from the tropical splendour of Mauritius and Belize to the luxurious delights of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. As always, you'll be treated throughout to articles by some of the UK's leading travel writers and photographers, including, in this issue, Fergal Keane, Simon Urwin Hilary Bradt and Wexas honorary president, Jonathan Scott.
