Travel Posters by artists on Folksy

Discover travel posters to remember places you’ve been and dream of places you haven’t

Faraway adventures, favourite family holiday spots, once-in-a-lifetime trips, childhood haunts, dream destinations or familiar local landmarks – travel posters can evoke them all. A print dedicated to special location can make a perfect anniversary gift to celebrate the place where you met, got married or spent your honeymoon, a great birthday present for family or friends with shared memories, or a thoughtful leaving present for someone moving house or changing job. But they’re equally good on your own wall!

If you’ve seen our redesigned Shop Local feature on Folksy, you’ll have seen a selection of travel posters by artists and illustrators on Folksy, chosen to represent each region of the UK. In this post we’re going to pick out some of our favourites but you can find lots more travel posters, prints and local artwork here.
