Our new issue is out now! Join us for our new ‘Discover’ travel special, which this issue transports you to Northumberland
As we head into 2023, there have been a few changes here at Discover Britain. The first being our new ‘Discover’ travel special, which this issue focusses on the ‘castle country’ of Northumberland.
In this 38-page bumper guide to England’s historic northeast region, we follow the food and drink trail from countryside to coast, and Jeremy Flint visits Alnwick Castle for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour with the Duke of Northumberland.
Another new addition is our London Spotlight series, where we take a look at some of the top things to do in the capital each issue, which this time focuses on theatreland.
We’re also celebrating some of our nation’s heroes, and this issue the spotlight is on Emily Brontë and whether a new film about her life is a fair depiction of the famed author.
Plus, you could be in with a chance of winning a stately lakeside stay on the Capheaton Estate in Northumberland.
