A travel writer and feature writer, Helen lives in the north (of England) which makes her properly appreciate the merest flicker of sunshine, and she doesn’t mind travelling big distances to find it. While she likes exploring a city’s nooks and crannies, she can also do lazy very well. Hiking across hills or testing the softness of sand are both fine with her. She writes travel and other features for many UK nationals, including the Telegraph, Sunday Times Travel Magazine, Times, Guardian and Condé Nast Traveller. She also writes for the Alastair Sawday guides.
