    new issue

    Our new issue is our now! Join us for our ‘Discover’ travel special, which this issue transports you to Celtic Britain

    This issue, our travel special encompasses several regions – Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and the Isle of Man – where Celtic culture is woven into the fabric of the places and people through music, folklore, and a sense of belonging, which have all been passed down for generations.

    For those searching for history and grandeur, we bringing you a potted history of some of the finest stately homes across Celtic Britain, plus, from iconic castles to spiritual sites – we list are some of the places you should include in your Celtic Britain tour.

    Our writer travels through the heart of Celtic Wales to meet some of the people keeping local  traditions alive, and our editor Sally Coffey gives us the low down on how Celtic music can still be enjoyed across the British Isles today.

    Elsewhere in the issue, as we celebrate the coronation of our new King Charles III, we look at the work of The Prince’s Foundation, and discover how a former sacred space in Chelsea has been transformed into a public space showcasing the Foundation’s commitment to sustainability and heritage crafts.

    And, you could be in with a chance of winning a stay for you and your family at Celtic Manor Resort in Northern Ireland!
