Writer. Photographer. Blogger.

Abigail King is an award-winning journalist and photographer whose work has appeared in National Geographic Traveler, Lonely Planet, the BBC, Red, CNN and more. She’s also written countless city and regional guides.

She is one of the leading figures in the UK for blogging and social media in travel and runs regular training sessions on the subject for travel writers, photographers, students and companies. Her blog, Inside the Travel Lab, has been described as ​“one of the best travel blogs in the world” by National Geographic Traveller and Lonely Planet. Grazia described her as one of “the hottest online explorers,” while Cosmopolitan listed her as one of the ten “top travel tweeters.”

Her scientific work has appeared in the Emergency Medicine Journal, Critical Care, The Lancet and more, drawing on her former experience as a hospital doctor.

Although British and now based in the UK, she has lived in Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, France and Spain and can speak both French and Spanish.

She is available for freelance writing and photography assignments.

Abigail brings a writerly and stylish voice to her travel pieces for me. Her pieces are well-researched and nicely detailed. She makes my job easy as an editor!
