The cover of the Sept / Oct 2020 issue of British Heritage Travel.

The September / October 2020 issue of British Heritage Travel magazine is winging its way to our subscribers! Here we take a look at what's in store in our bi-monthly print magazine this autumn.

While we certainly didn't have the perfect summer, the turning of the seasons is a reminder that time will always march on, a notion that echoes Dana Huntley's feature on the top ten United Kingdom war visits, which of course includes the famous Churchill War Rooms. Elsewhere, and with a nod to our current pandemic, Dana also looks at the tiny English town of Eyam, which prevented the spread of the bubonic plague all those years ago using techniques not dissimilar to our own. 

Sandra Lawrence shines a light on the London Royal Parks that have been providing city dwellers with a sense of normality over the past few months. She also looks at the life and legacy of Florence Nightingale who was born 200 years ago this year. 

And finally, we look at Somerset, Shrewsbury, and St David's as holiday destinations for when we can finally travel and come together again. In the meantime, there's no harm in planning the dream itinerary!
