BLOC Magazine Spring 2017 009Welcome 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.

Now that you can fly direct to Oakland/San Francisco from Gatwick with Norwegian and British Airway, we thought it a good time to explore the charms of California. The issue focuses on the northern parts of the state, famous for its scenery, wildlife and culinary excellence.

There’s something for everyone, no matter for your budget. We’ve also collated some of the best buys to keep your New Year’s fitness regimes going, plus a round-up of the best events for visitors to our Birmingham and Gatwick hotel.

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.
