The Dolman Best Travel Book Award is one of the two principal annual travel book awards in Britain, and the only one that is open to all writers.[1] The other award is that made each year by the British Guild of Travel Writers, but that is limited to authors who are members of the Guild.

The first Dolman award was given in 2006, just two years after the only other travel book award - the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award which ran for 25 years - was abandoned by its sponsor.[1] The £1,000 to £2,500 prize, organized by the Authors' Club, is sponsored by and named after club member William Dolman.[1][2]

Awards[edit]

Each year a small number of works are shortlisted and a winner is announced in early July at a dinner gala with the authors and publishers in attendance.
