50+ UK Black Travel Bloggers you need to know

March 16, 2021

The travel industry still lacks diversity and Black travel bloggers are not well represented especially those from the UK. Last year, at the time when anti-racism movements had taken off across the world, I created The Black Travel Directory. This directory of over 250 Black brands, content creators, bloggers and international service providers came out of frustrations on the lack of recognition within the travel industry. Although “diversity and inclusion” has been a buzzword for some time; not many brands are putting it into practice. This list was created with the hopes of helping PR brands to make a conscious effort to diversify their events, marketing campaigns and press trips.

When it comes to highlighting Black travel bloggers, the UK can be overlooked in comparison to our American counterparts who are vocal about their achievements. I am sharing a list of over 50 UK Black travel bloggers you need to know that are inspiring people to travel the world within their own niche.
