Top 32 UK-Based Travel Bloggers

There are so many brilliant UK travel bloggers – I feel like we don’t get the recognition or klout of our American friends who shout their successes from the rooftops.

So I’m here to highlight some of the best UK travel blogs for you to plan your trip by.

There are a few other lists out there, featuring the best of the UK-based travel blogging scene, but I’ve met each and every one of these British travel bloggers personally. I can totally vouch for their skills, their personalities and their outlook.

The ‘quote’ is taken from the said travel bloggers’ Twitter profile and you can click through for more details on their social spaces.

*All the top UK travel bloggers are based in the UK, not necessarily from here.*

So, in no particular order, here goes…

2. Helen Davies from Helen in Wonderlust

Best UK based bloggersI first met Helen at a travel blogging conference in Dublin and by the end of our first drink together we had a mutual appreciation for one another. That shouldn’t sound weird if it does. Helen used to work at Kelloggs but wasn’t responsible for the Choco Krispies / Coco Pops renaming debacle, which was my first question.

Now she runs tours in Africa, and lives there half of the year. You can find out more about Helen in the podcast chat I had with her.

“Liverpool based Travel Blogger, Mischief Maker. Loves Africa, Live Music and Adventure. Proud Auntie.”

UK travel bloggers

“Helen Davies is a an adventurer, part-time traveller and full-time Africa lover. Not one to do things by halves, Helen can usually be found on or planning an epic trip. Having spent a year in Africa, she’s keen to encourage others to explore her favourite continent. She writes about her travels (in Africa and elsewhere), and about the people she meets along the way on her blog.”

3. Paul and Karen from Global Help Swap

UK travel bloggersKaren and Paul are brilliant. Together with me, Jen and Alicia we form the originally Midlands consortium of UK travel bloggers. They’ve recently set up house down London way though they’re well-known for their worldwide house sitting skills. If you want a laugh, and a good story, get some Global Help Swap in your life.

“Responsible, Local and Authentic Travel. Real Travel, Real Experiences. Tips for memorable and meaningful travel.”

Uk travel bloggers

“Paul and Karen have visited over 50 countries and are certainly not tired of travelling yet. A recent trip to Mexico was a pleasant encounter with fun loving, generous Mexicans and a few cervezas. When they are not on the move, you can find them deep in a good book with a bottle of red wine close at hand.”

4. Emily Luxton from EmilyLuxton.co.uk

Emily is great fun and one of my favourite travel bloggers to travel with. She’s an excellent photographer and writer, and loves to get the most out of every trip she goes on. She’s so passionate about travel and often goes off on multi-month adventures, most recently to Central America. She claims she’s a shy girl who found herself travelling, but usually when I see her she’ll be making friends with a glass of wine in her hand.

“Award winning full-time travel blogger and solo traveller championing deeper travel. Blogging about adventure, food, and personal development through travel.”

“In a nutshell, my travel style is Deep Travel. That means travelling slower when possible, and travelling intelligently. My mission is to get to know the world; not just travel it all or see it all, but to try to understand it as much as possible – and have some fun doing it! I blog mainly about culture, food, art, people, and landscapes… always focusing on connecting with a new place as deeply and honestly as I can.”

5. Jen Lowthrop from She Gets Around

Top UK travel bloggersMe and Jen go way back, in travel blogger terms. Now she’s one of my favourite people in the UK travel blogger world – we’ve had some great times in London, Porto and Brighton at various conferences. She’s all about the volunteering, and the dating, and is a great person to talk to to chew the fat on either.

“Travel blogger on a journey to find my element, through #travel, adventure, writing, drama, food, love and community.”

UK travel bloggers

“For Jenny, there is nowhere too typical, too outrageous, too hot or too cold to travel to. From a tranquil walk around the Taj Mahal to a nine-month trek across Asia to a hectic but momentous 48-hour bus ride in Northern India, she travels for the people and the stories.

The unparalleled experiences, rare moments and genuine human connections feed her passion for exploration, which is hinged on learning cultures, eating exotic delicacies like sugar-fried crickets and living like a local wherever she goes. Jenny says she loves the world too much to let time go by without her next adventure planned.”

6. Monica Stott from The Travel Hack

Best UK Bloggers Monica is one of my favourite bloggers and people on the list, if I’m allowed a favourite. She’s got a beautiful baby and life up in Chester somewhere and one of those French bulldog dogs that people like too. She’s all about the stylish travel and I don’t know anyone who enjoys Twitter chats more than her. We used to work together what seems like an age ago, but now we just talk a lot on Facebook Messenger instead.

7. Emily Ray from The Cosy Traveller

Top UK travel blogsIsn’t she lovely hey? Emily is a sweetheart and is enjoying her lovely life with the help of a good brew and with the presence of an animal now and then. I just went on her blog to find her social media details and for her latest post she’s photoshopped her face onto someone holding a koala. That’s just the way she rolls over on The Cosy Traveller.

“Travel blogger and content writer. I blog about comfort, tea and animals all over the world.”

8. Chloe Gunning from Wanderlust Chloe

Best UK travel bloggersChloe is great. We’ve been skiing in France together, and lived it up on St Kitts where we drank so many rum cocktails I’m pretty sure we were sick of them by the end of the week. Anyway, her blog is awesome and she’s an ambassador for Lonely Planet and Visit England, and probably other stuff I don’t know about too. She used to work as a producer with Emma Bunton – Baby Spice!

“Travel blogger, creative producer, foodie and adventurer showing you the world. Happiest when holding a mojito! Regular Lonely Planet + Metro contributor.”

9. Macca Sherifi from An Adventurous World

Best UK travel bloggersMacca and I used to work together too, with Monica. Oh the FUN we had. He’s a good friend, and I especially enjoy his company after we’ve both had a little drinky drinky. Last time I went out with him he was singing McFly songs at full volume at the bar. As for being a blogger, he’s super passionate about his work, and seeing the world. His photography and video skills are amazing.

10. Lloyd and Yaya from Hand Luggage Only

Top UK travel bloggersLloyd and Yaya were crowned Vuelio’s Travel Bloggers of the Year in 2017 & 18. Meaning, they’ve actually got the highest views of any travel blogger in the UK. Their blog is AMAZING. It’s the fun and the photography that makes it so good. They’re two of the best people I know and after our awesome weekend in Hamburg together, I just think they’re both brilliant. They deserve every success they have. Think they should probably sit down and take a rest though – travel much?

Ooo, the blogger did good. And once upon a time she was a doctor, which explains all the ‘lab’ influence. Just realised she’d be a great person to go on a press trip with, what with all that medical knowledge.

Victoria and Steve are a dream team. They run their blog alongside their passions, for Victoria that’s her charity work and for Steve it’s his Planetary Collective film, shown at SXSW.

He was so friendly and welcoming to me and now I know I can call him a friend. He’s well known among the travel blogging community as the hostess with the mostess, well, maybe not in those words but he’s the go to man for bloggers in need of some London accommodation.

He recently, actually I think it was a while ago now, did the 24 Peaks Challenge in 24 hours to raise money for a charity close to his heart. He’s one of my absolute favourite English travel bloggers, although I feel like I’m saying that about everyone now.

    Awesome list, I already follow several of these blogs but it's great to find more awesome ones for travel inspiration! I'm also from the UK, and it's good to see a list of UK based bloggers, it makes a refreshing change from the eons of Americans!

    • by Vicky on July 13, 2015  8:28 am Reply

      Yeah, that's why I wanted to compile it. I felt like it was those Americans who get all the attention and wanted us UKers to get some limelight!
