Winter is here, and it’s one of those seasons that encourages people to hunker down indoors. We’ve got you covered whether you want to hibernate, escape it, or – even smarter – beat it!
For those who want to hibernate and make the most of the long dark nights, we have our mega guides to the best 4K setup, from Blu-ray to barn-storming sound systems and the all-important display. A great home cinema is nothing without something to watch, so we’ve also compiled the top TV shows and movies you’ll find on streaming services and disc to make the most of your tech.
If you’d rather escape it, check out our extensive travel feature that shows off the best places to go and sights to see – plus the essential gadgets that will enhance your travels. I’ve tried and tested a few of these myself (the DJI Spark and Garmin Fenix 5 are firm favourites), so no matter where you go you’ll have fine equipment for your holidays.
And if you want to beat it, we look at the science behind what causes the winter blues, and give you some ideas for how to stay active and make the most of the winter months. There’s some clever tips in there that will take you right through to a sunnier, warmer season, so I hope our advice and gear treats you well.
No matter what you do, enjoy the issue!
