Explore History magazine is the world’s first travel/history hybrid

Market-leading knowledge publisher launches its fourth history title

Imagine Publishing announces the launch of Explore History, the first magazine of its kind.

Following the success of All About History, History of War and History of Royals, Explore History continues Imagine Publishing’s mission to revolutionise the history sector. Explore History combines the eye-watering photography and practical advice of a consumer travel magazine with storytelling, insight and authority that has made the existing history range such a force to be reckoned with.

Explore History issue 1 takes readers on a tour of the world’s most famous heritage sites, from the jaw-dropping spectacle of Machu Picchu and the Great Wall of China, to the imperial grandeur of Prague, revealing insider tips from tour guides and the amazing life-altering stories that lurk behind every stone.

Also in the debut issue of Explore History, we reveal the 25 World Heritage Wonders that should make up every must-see list, go behind the walls of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History to discover the curator’s top picks, and follow in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth I, from the castles where she held court to the dungeon where the Tudor princess once faced death.

“Explore History reflects not just the huge interest in history, but the way in which people are engaging with it,” explained Editor in Chief James Hoare. “While conventional travel guides and travel magazines relegate the past to a few sentences of throwaway trivia, Explore History puts heritage at the heart of the magazine. Behind every battered oak door or every ivy-clad wall are a hundred amazing stories and we’re excited to be telling them.”

Priced at £4.99, Explore History is out now and available from all high street magazine retailers such as WH Smith, independents, and all major supermarkets.
