    new issue

    Our new issue is out now! Join us for our ‘Discover’ travel special, which this issue transports you to the South West of England

    This issue, with summer on the horizon, our travel special has taken us to Britain’s most popular holiday region: England’s South West. This 47-page guide is so packed with inspiration that we predict you’ll have booked your next trip to Devon, Dorset, Cornwall or Somerset before we can say bucket and spade.

    If you’re looking for some sustenance on your travels, then our very own Henrietta Easton has done her best to pluck out the most delicious cream teas to be enjoyed in both Devon and Cornwall, and we follow a new tourism route the South West 660, which offers up some real coastal gems, from Dorset to Somerset via Cornwall and Devon.

    Our editor also meets the sustainable drinks producers diversifying the rural economy on a mouth-watering drinks tour of Devon.

    Plus, we’ve got coronation fever as the nation prepares to crown our new King Charles III on 6 May 2023. We explain what you can expect from the historic ceremony, and how you can join in the celebrations.

    And, on the 850th anniversary of his canonisation, we assess where it all went wrong for Archbishop St Thomas Becket.

    We’ve got two competitions for you this issue: the first is our Great British Holiday Competition 2023, which is back and bigger than ever this year. The second is the chance to win a luxury stay in elegant Bovey Castle in Dartmoor, Devon.
