Gareth Huw Davies

I’ve written for national newspapers since the 1980s.

These include The Sunday Times, Sunday Times Magazine and Business News, Radio Times (where I was a senior feature writer 1989 - 2001) the Daily Telegraph, and The Times.

My books are:

Vanishing England was commissioned by the Council for the Protection of Rural England to accompany photographs of threatened landscapes by leading British photographers, including Lord Snowdon, Patrick Lichfield and Linda McCartney, and published by Weidenfeld and Nicholson in 1987.

I wrote this microsite on Sir David Attenborough’s series Life of Bird for the Public Broadcasting Service, USA (PBS).

In 1990 I was runner up in the TV-am National Broadcast Journalist of the Year Awards, in the Best Specialist Press category.

In 1998 I won the Italian Tourist Board’s “Most Intriguing Journalist” award for an essay on Turin, and finished second in the German Tourist Board’s awards for an article on Nuremburg.

Six things to do in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, place of the gazelle, is less frantic than its neighbour Dubai. The biggest of the emirates is a destination on its own.

The star-crossed landscape of England
The Lake District? Think Austrian Alps, Italian lakes and Norway's steep U-shaped valleys, packed into a precious piece of England just 35 miles across. And now the BBC is to adapt Arthur Ransome's much loved children's saga Swallows and Amazons, set in Lakeland.
