Jarrold Publishing is an award-winning heritage publisher, offering cutting-edge design, beautiful photography, authoritative editorial, exquisite illustration, and high-quality print services.

We understand that a successful guidebook generates revenue, encourages additional visitors, and promotes and extends the reach of your brand.

We work with 100s of historic houses, gardens, museums, galleries, and cathedrals
to develop initial ideas and turn them into bold and beautiful publications that visitors want to buy.

At Jarrold Publishing we work with a diverse range of visitor attractions, each offering unique and fascinating visitor experiences. We value all our clients equally, whether large or small, so please visit our website to find out more about them.

Our award-winning graphic designers have extensive experience in the publishing industry, with specific skills in book and cover art. Each designer absorbs the subject fully before putting forward intelligent and creative design concepts.

A beautiful publication begins with beautiful photography. Our photographers are acknowledged experts in the heritage sector, ensuring we capture the heart of your history, architecture and collections.

We employ writers with specific knowledge in the museums and heritage sector. Our authors and editors work closely with staff at your organisation to research and write authoritative and accessible copy for any publication.

We have many illustrators to call on, all with their own specialisation. So whether you’re looking for a character for a children’s book, a floorplan or a highly detailed historical map, we can deliver the right style for you.

Jarrold Publishing has long-standing relationships with trusted quality printers in the UK, Europe and the Far East. The whole print process is managed, from sign-off of the finished artwork to delivery, by our dedicated production manager.

In addition, we have two warehouses: one in England, and one in Scotland. Books are delivered in from our printers and can be dispatched in a single delivery or stored safely and securely for delivery over a number of years.

That’s why Jarrold Publishing has remained a market-leading heritage publisher for over a century.
