Travis Elborough is an author and social commentator, described by The Guardian as ‘one of Britain's finest pop cultural historians’. His books include The Bus We Loved, a history of London’s Routemaster bus; The Long-Player Goodbye, a hymn to vinyl records published as The Vinyl Countdown in the Unites States; Wish You Were Here, a survey of the British beside the seaside and A Walk in the Park, a loving exploration of public parks and green space, hailed as 'a fascinating, informative, revelatory book' by William Boyd.

Atlas of Improbable Places, his collaboration with the cartographer Alan Horsfield, was saluted by Monocle magazine for ‘making the world feel bigger.’

He has also compiled such anthologies as Our History of the 20th Century: As Told in Diaries and Letters to Change the World: From Pankhurst to Orwell.
