Travelling History is a travel blog for those who enjoy exploring history and culture from around the world. We cover history, art, culture, food, drink, hotels, tours, festivals, books, theatre and more!
Travelling History was started in 2014 by head blogger Kelly Hayes after moving to Glasgow from her native country of Canada to complete her master’s degree in history.
What started as a hobby turned into a passion and Travelling History has been named a Top 100 blog at both the World Travel Market London as well as Travel Bloggers Destination Italy. Travelling History has been quoted in national newspapers such as The Scotsman and also mentioned by prominent travel sites such as Lonely Planet.
Now based in London, Kelly is continuing to explore cultural travel, both in her own backyard and around the world.
“To me, history isn’t just textbooks and archives, history is the story behind everything we come across in life. Whether it’s a heritage site, building, hotel or restaurant, I believe everything has a unique story and it is these stories that I try to tell through the blog.”
