The magazine was previously published by the Weider History Group, but was purchased by Kliger Heritage Media in late 2014
New York, NY – January 11, 2016 – British Heritage Magazine, a 35-year-old bi-monthly magazine for serious Anglophiles living in North America, has been renamed and relaunched as British Heritage Travel Magazine, it was announced today by Jack Kliger, Chief Executive Officer of Kliger Heritage Media. While the new name of the magazine is reflected in the current January/February issue, significant editorial changes will be instituted beginning in the May/June issue.
“We’ve renamed and relaunched the magazine as British Heritage Travel to reflect our readers’ love for traveling to Britain and throughout the UK,” said Kliger. “The magazine has a passionate and loyal group of U.S.-based subscribers who visit Britain from more than two dozen gateway cities that provide non-stop air service to Britain. The relaunched magazine will provide these readers with enhanced tools, tips and content to enrich their journeys.”
The changes in the magazine include:
- A New Size: Effective with the May/June 2016 issue, British Heritage Travel Magazine will be printed on a larger physical format to give the quality of the magazine its appropriate greater heft.
- Revamped Columns: Some columns are getting a sharper focus, in particular “Dateline,” the eclectic front-of-the-book column about all things British. The column will now emphasize people, places, and things of interest for travelers to Britain. “AngloFile,” in the back, will now cover British-oriented events and British products available or accessible in the United States. Some columns will now have service sidebars, with hotel and restaurant recommendations from the experts. Additionally, most feature stories in the magazine will now include sidebars featuring suggestions of hotels and restaurants.
- New Features: Each issue always offers a variety of experts, but the new British Heritage Travel Q&A will feature notable personalities, from Downton AbbeyExecutive Producer Gareth Neame and Outlander author Diana Gabaldon to the directors of Britain’s top museums, castles, and companies, famous chefs, and members of the British Royal Family. Additionally, each issue will feature an expansive photo essay tied to the theme of the issue.
- User-Generated Photographs: In each issue, the best user-generated image submitted to the magazine’s website (www.britishheritage.com/photos) will be printed on the magazine’s back page in a new column.
- Redesigned Layouts: The larger-size format will feature more expansive layouts and gorgeous, larger images.
- Website Redesign: BritishHeritage.comwill be redesigned in the coming months, with a new look, a re-architecture, and more original content.
