About Us

This specialist travel PR agency is a small team. As you can see, the Beacon PR team combines almost 100 years’ experience in travel marketing. Our office-in-a-barn is a relaxed and creative environment. You’ll never get an ‘out of office’ reply or ‘go to voicemail’. Our team ethic means our clients never miss an editorial opportunity and journalists can rely on us to respond on brief and on time. Beacon PR’s country base keeps overheads low, yet we’re only an hour from London by train.
