Since our foundation in 1974, Bradt Guides has had a reputation for publishing guides to places overlooked by other travel publishers. That continues today. As of February 2020, over two thirds of our list* has no direct competition from other publishers – if there was no Bradt guide to these places, there would be no guide at all.
*Of 130 Bradt Guides, 89 have no direct competition from the other major travel publishers (Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, DK Eyewitness, Insight, Marco Polo, Moon) – 68%. Either those publishers don’t cover these destinations at all, or they include them as part of wider coverage whereas we have a dedicated guide.
For a further 12 titles, we have the most recently-published guide as of February 2020. This includes all our regular overseas guides as well as the Slow Travel series to UK regions. You can download a detailed list of our unique guides here:
