The Dolman Best Travel Book Award
is, as of 2008, the only travel book award in Britain. The first award was given in 2006, just two years after the only other travel book award - the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award
which ran for 25 years - was abandoned by its sponsor. The £1,000 prize, organized by the Authors’ Club
, is sponsored by and named after club member William Dolman
Each year five works are shortlisted and a winner is announced in early July at a dinner gala with the authors and publishers in attendance.
