Where to Go

DK Eyewitness

Excited for the next adventure? Where to Go, produced by the team behind the award-winning DK Eyewitness travel guides, is here to help. Each fortnight, hosts James and Lucy talk to local experts about the destination they have chosen to call their home, exploring their personal connection to the place, what makes it so special and the best things to see and do. And - new for this season - from time to time, they’ll be talking to some very special guests about their favourite places to go, alongside some quickfire travel questions. Where to Go is also supported by our colleagues from DK Travel in Germany (Vis-à-Vis, Top 10 and more).
