Whether you are looking for (very) last minute travel books as Christmas gifts, or you would like to view a selection of what are possibly some of the best travel, and travel related books of 2019, the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards (ESTWA) shortlist may be a good place to look.
There are a wide range of categories including cooking related books.
The winner of the principal category, the Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year Award, in association with The Authors Club, will receive £2,500 at the awards ceremony which takes place at The London Transport Museum on 26th February 2020. The event will be compered by former Countryfile and Wish You Were Here presenter and author Julia Bradbury. You can purchase tickets if you wish to attend.
The judging panel includes explorer Benedict Allen and it’s great to see our old friend Nick Hunt also on the panel.
View the shortlist and purchase tickets for the awards here. It is worth a look just to view some of the wonderful covers!
