Welcome to Heritage Hunter – we aim to bring you the latest news in the UK history and heritage world, from new exhibitions to museum visits to interesting history-themed features – plus we have what is possibly the largest active database of UK history and heritage-related places to visit and research organisations available online. All our content is organised by UK region, so it’s easy to find articles, news and places relevant to your specific area of interest.

Heritage Hunter is edited by Andrew Chapman, editor of Discover Your Ancestors magazine and former executive editor of Your Family History magazine, aided by historian and history journalist Nell Darby. We have a team of experienced historians and journalists bringing you regular new content. Sign up to our weekly newsletter to receive the latest news and features directly to your inbox.

Most of the content here is free, and we add to it every week. However, to read more than three of the features, we invite you to subscribe for only £15 a year, to support us in providing ongoing high-quality content for the future.
