Welcome to Halcyon Lifestyle

W e have spent many years writing about, reporting on and witnessing the luxury lifestyle. For the last decade this has been collated into our bespoke client publication – Halcyon (back issues are readable on our archive page).

Halcyon magazine is placed in private jets, in FBOs, in private members clubs and in the suites of a galaxy of five-star hotels in the UK, across Europe and, to a lesser extent, the wider world. Certain clients have also undertaken to distribute it within their VVIP networks.

With all that 2020 threw at the travelling world we launched this Halcyon Lifestyle website to collate and curate the many articles in our library. All of these are still highly relevant and informative and we believe you will enjoy them.

Of course we will continue to add new articles as suitable subjects come to our attention. For content suggestions or if you want to discuss advertising or sponsorship opportunities then feel free to contact us. Halcyon, the magazine, will return when the world can travel again.
