COVID-19 might be putting a kibosh on our summer 2020 vacation plans but we can always look forward and explore the wonder of the United Kingdom through the July / August British Heritage Travel print magazine.
When British Heritage Travel print magazine July / August 2020 issue was going to print the world was still in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic, with international travel suspended for the foreseeable future. While some restrictions in Europe have been lifted it doesn't seem like many will be traveling abroad this summer. Due to the pandemic, this issue of British Heritage Travel might feel a little different. Instead of showcasing the best places to visit on your next trip, we've taken a little trip down memory lane.
Dana Huntley takes a look at the British food scene and distinctive dishes that are best enjoyed on our sceptered isle. He also takes a look back at his own travels and shares his most memorable experiences from decades of trips to the UK.
We test your knowledge with a great big British quiz. Think you know everything there is to know about the UK? Maybe answer that question after you've tested yourself!
Elsewhere, Sandra Lawrence has a round-up of all the London attractions offering virtual visits, which may help put our wanderlust to rest for the next few months.
Wherever you are we hope you're safe and that this issue of BHT provides a few hours distraction.
