    2021

    Our final episode of this season of Where to Go looks at the year ahead: 2021. This year promises to be the year where we'll be able to travel once again and – to optimistically look ahead to that – James and Lucy are joined in this special edition by an array of guests from earlier episodes in the series, as well as the DK Eyewitness editorial team, to discuss where they want to go in 2021. From eco-friendly fine dining in Slovenia to wild Patagonian treks; cycling the length of Wales to traversing the Silk Road, these are the journeys we've been dreaming about, and we can't wait to share them. Also listen to the end for a quick travel quiz with editor Becky Flynn - do play along!

    Dublin & Ireland

    Dublin & Ireland

    In more normal times, Ireland and Dublin enthral millions of visitors every year. Dublin is the all-signing, all-dancing capital: home to historical architecture, eye-opening cultural institutions, an unparalleled music scene and – of course – that all-important pint of Guinness. Meanwhile the island of Ireland contains some of Europe’s most dramatic scenery, crowned by its wild Atlantic coastline and spellbinding lakelands. So this week James and Lucy paid the island a virtual visit in the company of travel writer Nicola Brady. Along the way, they came across viking ruins (in a supermarket), not-so-casual drinkers trying to catch a glimpse of Bruce Springsteen, Dublin’s fine foodie scene and salty seaweed baths.

    London

    London

    London is a city that's always full of energy – think the reverie and theatres of Soho, the packed pubs of the East End, the buzzing commuters pacing The City and the packed galleries and food markets along the Southbank. But what happens when everything stops? This week James and Lucy are joined by writer Julie Falconer, also known as A Lady in London, to discuss all things London, including their favourite places to go, what makes London so special and how they got on in the city in 2020.

    Paris

    Paris

    Paris is a treasure trove of things to see and do. But it's not just the famous sights that make the city so appealing to visitors – it's the vibrant local scene found across the city's many neighbourhoods – think cool cafes, brilliant bookshops and of course, some of the world's best food. This week, Lucy and James pay the city a virtual visit in the company of writer Eleanor Aldridge. They discuss Eleanor's life as an adopted Parisian, must-do experiences (champagne and oysters, anyone?) and how the city has responded to the events of 2020.
