Country Life’s 100-page Coronation souvenir issue: What’s inside and how to order a copy

Our 100-page special edition of Country Life is in the shops now.

The Country Life team worked tirelessly over the coronation weekend to put this very special magazine together, a one-off ‘bookazine’ which will be on sale for the next few weeks as a magnificent souvenir of an unforgettable occasion.

The magazine is in shops across the UK now, and is available to order via post both to the UK and across the world at Magazines Direct at the cover price of £8, with free postage and packing in the UK. Overseas prices vary.

Please note that this issue is outside of our regular schedule, and therefore won’t get sent to subscribers; all subscribers should pick up a copy in the shops or order via the link above to avoid disappointment.
