Anna Hart

Travel Columnist

Born in Belfast to globe-trotting activist parents, Anna Hart's journalism career began nearly two decades ago in London, as a junior reporter at FHM magazine, where she could be covering the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans one week, and interviewing Stevie Wonder at The Savoy Hotel the next. She rose through the ranks of features editor at Grazia and deputy editor at Condé Nast Brides before going freelance to focus fully on international food, culture and travel journalism, for titles including The New York Times, National Geographic, GQ, The Guardian and The Economist. She joined the Gourmet Traveller team as its roving travel columnist in late 2019 and still shivers with excitement to have a column previously held by one of her journalism idols, AA Gill. With an eye for a trend and a fiercely international outlook, she has lived and worked in Singapore, New Zealand, California and Spain, and continues to find other countries to call home. A multi-platform journalist, Anna has co-directed an award-winning short documentary, co-presented a Discovery Channel food and travel show, and written a best-selling travel memoir, Departures; she is currently working on her second travel book.
