Since its launch in 1897, Country Life has been the world’s most celebrated magazine of the British way of life, its countryside, properties and gardens.
Its matchless authority, exquisite photography and world-class writing have ensured its position as one of the nation’s truly great magazines.
Country Life readers have always sought the best things in life from food and antiques to the finest properties and estates to buy. Our readers love to travel, have exquisite taste and a large disposable income which allows them to live in the manner to which they are accustomed.
“What other magazine can encapsulate the state of the nation through such eclectic content—rare antiques to rare-breed animals, medieval architecture to modern kitchens, Bach to bridge—a guardian of the past that sets a blueprint for the future, that speaks to town and country alike? Readers describe it as their ‘weekly fix’, ‘a countryman’s tonic’, ‘a champion of what needs championing’, ‘a byword for taste’ and ‘a magazine of dreams that’s like returning from a happy trip through the British countryside’. Search the world, and you will find nothing else like it.”
