Welcome to the November / December issue of British Heritage Travel. Winter is truly upon us now and over the holiday season, as is tradition, we take stock of the year gone by and make big plans for travel for the year ahead. Of course, given the interesting times we live in, we'd rather get dreaming about our next vacation in Britain.
In this issue, Dana Huntley recounts the many benefits of travelling to Britain during the
off-peak winter months. We do have palm trees after all! Speaking of less balmy climes, Susiie Kearly heads north and explores the wonderful community spirit felt in the Orkney Islands while Siân Ellis spends a day in historic and lovely Lewes.
Winter is the perfect time to curl up with a good book and it's almost a certainty that many of our BHT readers are fans of detective stories. We take a look at why it is that we all love a good English crime story and explore Britain's top writers.
Sandra Lawrence also explores a wonderful way of keeping connected to Britain, even though we might not be able to travel as freely as we'd like, through online (and often free) entertaining and fascinating online talks, including a firm favorite on Christmas music.
As always, enjoy.
