Come with us on a British reading journey

The Original Travelling Reader monthly book box includes a fiction book for you set in a British region, and comes with accompanying items such as tea and confectionery from businesses local to that area or book-related items. We visit a different place each month with our subscription service. Take a look at our other monthly boxes, too, including our London Travelling Reader, our Humour Editions, and our hampers from around Britain: Simply British Tastes.

And our Junior Travelling Reader boxes for the younger bookworm!

I loved everything! I couldn’t put the book down and all the treats in the box were just lovely. I look forward to the next box. Thank you!


Just got my long awaited “Red Box”! It was well worth the wait. No one will be hearing from me for awhile...I’ll be reading.


Bought a box as a gift, was beautifully presented. My daughter loved all the products that linked with the book and especially enjoyed the photographs.


I received my box today (I’m in the US) and was so delighted! I don’t want to say too much in case someone hasn’t received theirs yet but it was all wonderful!!!


Wow my original travelling reader box arriving this morning has put the biggest smile on my face. Absolutely amazing and love the look of the book and everything else in it. Feel like I get a lovely treat each month.


This is a WONDERFUL Christmas/Birthday/Anniversary gift to give to that special someone who loves all things British, loves to read and to travel!!!! Thank you TR for your services!!!


Received my second box and just love it. It’s clear a lot of thought and effort goes into each box. Absolutely fantastic, thank you.


Once again, the contents of the box exceeded my expectations! Thank you for an exceptional product!
