BLOC Magazine Summer 2017 010Welcome to the online home of BLOC, the glossy new lifestyle magazine for smart travellers.

The printed edition is packed with cutting-edge reportage for you to enjoy and includes original features on travel, technology, design and motoring.

For this issue we wanted to focus on a true summer holiday destination, but give you an insight into the other side of the island. Ibiza is known for its wild parties and crazy behaviour, but there is a very different vibe, with hippies, yoga retreats and great restaurants. We’ve collated some of the best buys to pack for your summer holiday, wherever it may take you.

There’s a round-up of the best events for visitors to our Birmingham and Gatwick hotels and the usual features about new technology, design and art.

You can view all of the articles on this site or to view an online version of the magazine click here.

We’ll also be adding to and updating this site with more cool stuff that we find on our travels. Jump on-board!

Your journey begins here.
