The UK's longest-running travel magazine

Traveller Magazine: Past Issues


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 52 No 2 2022

In our autumn issue of Traveller, we’ve roamed far and wide to bring you the very latest from the world of travel. Taking to the rails, we board the Ghan for a journey of luxury and intrigue across the Australian Outback. There’s also a voyage of a lifetime on the legendary Queen Mary 2 – the world’s only transatlantic liner.

More rugged adventures await on Denmark’s North Sea Coast and a sunny sojourn on a Greek island. There’s trekking in Bolivia, a drive along Mexico’s coastal route, paddling along the Orinoco in Venezuela and fishing boat forays amidst the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha, Brazil’s version of the Galápagos. We’ll also whisk you away for a stay on a slightly surreal Vietnamese island, and our Honorary President Jonathan Scott provides a hard-hitting piece on lions.

Elsewhere, you’ll discover some splendid architecture and a sumptuous piece on Valencia, sampling its culinary delights, while our regular feast feature reveals Parsi food and rich historical detail.

Traveller Magazine - Vol 52 No 1 2022

Welcome to the latest issue of Traveller, the first issue of 2022 and the first since the world really opened its doors again. This time, we’ve taken the chance to roam further afield, from the mountains of Nepal to the Great Barrier Reef in all its technicolour glory. You’ll find inspiration in the icy reaches of Antarctica, meet the surreal animals of the Galápagos, climb mountains in Vietnam and hike through idyllic islands in the Seychelles, all through the eyes of our talented writers.

Taking to the rails, we traverse South Africa aboard Rovos Rail, one of the world’s most iconic trains, and take to the waves with Seabourn, both offering luxury in abundance. Further indulgence can be found in fabulous hotels in Mauritius, Rwanda and Scandinavia. And, there’s culture to delight in too, from Porto to Nashville to Stockholm, and in our odes to Venice and the curious hoopoe.

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.
