Explore publications are free distribution tourist information papers, produced on high quality newsprint, providing the best value for money coverage available

The papers contain approximately 60% editorial and 40% display advertising, featuring events listings, location maps and "fact finder" information provided by local organisations.

The papers have slightly smaller dimensions than the average tabloid and are printed on user-friendly, quality newsprint. Each paper now contains full-colour glossy newsprint throughout.

The papers are fully self-funding from revenue from our supporters and advertisers, who range from small providers of tourism services, such as bed and breakfast providers and tea rooms, through all sizes of attraction, to the major public bodies such as Councils and conservation organisations. We welcome the involvement of any organisation which feels it gains from better informed and more aware visitors to the area.

Our longest standing Explore paper is Explore the Marches , covering Shropshire, Herefordshire and eastern Powys.

We now have two other titles - Explore the Forest of Dean and Lower Wye Valley, and Explore the Malvern Hills and Severn Vale .
