Geographical magazine

Geographical is the official monthly magazine of the Society and has been published in the UK since 1935. Covering a range of content including geography, culture, wildlife and exploration, and all beautifully illustrated with insightful photography, Geographical is both informative and educational. 

Sustainability is important to both the Society and Geographical, as such the paper for the magazine originates from timber grown in sustainable forests which is responsibly managed to strict environmental, social and economic standards. For every tree that is used to make Geographical, three more are planted in its place. Plus, the magazine is delivered to subscribers in 100% compostable packaging which breaks down in six months. 

Geographical is included as part of the membership package for Members, as a digital edition for Student Members, and it can also be added to subscriptions for Fellowship and Associate Fellowship


If you want to add a subscription to Geographical to your Fellowship or check your subscription options, please email
