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.

Travel Posters – harbour views, bays and fishing villages
Cobbled streets, boats bobbing in harbours, seagulls circling overhead: you’ll find all these things and more in travel posters depicting fishing villages, coves, bays and harbours across the UK.
Travel Posters – architectural icons
Whether its the art deco form of the Surbiton Station, the unforgettable silhouette of the Tyne Bridge or the sweetshop-coloured houses along Nyhavn in Copenhagen, there will be a travel poster to celebrate your architectural icon of choice.
Travel Posters – British seaside
Reminisce about summers spent on the English Riviera building sandcastles, then winding your way between lines of deckchairs and donkey rides to reach the candyfloss and arcades, with a retro seaside poster.
Travel Posters – dream destinations
With months and months of travel restrictions, journeys to faraway destinations and sun-soaked adventures exploring unfamiliar lands and tasting new flavours have been ever more out of reach than usual. Bring those dream destinations a little closer with a travel poster of your fantasy sanctuary.
Travel Posters – original prints
Travel posters that aren’t just posters but beautiful original prints. That’s what you get with landscapes, cityscapes and vistas by printmakers on Folksy. Find a linoprint, screenprint or etching of your favourite place.
Travel Posters – city breaks
Bustling streets, bus hopping, browsing the shelves of indie shops, people watching at pavement cafés, followed by dinner and a show – remember those days? No? Well, you can always buy the print.
Children’s Travel Posters
Who says travel posters have to be of real places? Let your child’s imagination run wild and help them plan unicorn-spotting missions in Scotland, escape beasts on Bodmin and search for pixies in the garden of England.
