The official magazine of the Giltrap Group,66 Magazine is a bespoke title, hand-crafted by a small team for a wide audience.

appealing lifestyle content, celebrating a diverse array of food, wine, fashion, gadgets and travel from here and abroad. Affiliated brand ambassadors and knowledgeable contributors keep 66 Magazine’s lifestyle content fresh through the seasons.
