Book Depository Competitions



  • blog image

    This year DK guides have a completely fresh, modern look - to the jackets, the interiors, the maps and more. New itineraries will inspire travellers and make trip planning even easier - from short breaks in cities, to longer country trips of between seven and fourteen days. The DK Choice recommended listings highlight restaurants and hotels of special note. Refreshed maps showcase attractions and street names even more clearly, and sophisticated typography means improved overall readability.

    Now DK guides give you the chance to win a shiny iPad mini and 5 DK travel guides of your choice! Just answer the simple question below to be in with a chance to win. Competition ends on Thursday 10 October. Good luck!
