Members of the British Guild of Travel Writers are very active on the web. Many blog and others are involved in various creative online projects. Here we give details of a small selection of blogs run by Guild members. This initial group is based on an evaluation in 2013 of online work by members. We do not suggest that these are in any sense the 'best' – merely that there are a good selection that met key criteria for frequency, visibility and domain authority. We plan to add to the list in early 2014.
The nine blogs are listed in alphabetical order (by surname of the author). Just click on the blog name in purple for a live link to the respective blog. This page loads perfectly in all modern browsers. You may encounter difficulty in legacy versions of Internet Explorer.
A quirky guide to the best places to eat, drink and stay in Yorkshire
"In 1992 I was invited to join the inaugural flight of Richard Branson's Vintage Airways, an airline operating holiday flights from Orlando to Key West using two restored Douglas DC3 aircraft offering 1940's style service, livery, uniforms and experience—one of their signature moments was the excited announcement from the flight deck that they had just heard on the radio, news of the Japanese surrender in the Pacific. I remember the thing that surprised me most—besides Japan tenaciously holding on for another 50 years—was having to walk steeply uphill to my seat."
