A travel agency that doesn't sell holidays


KEELEY TRAVEL is a travel agency that doesn’t sell holidays, run by architectural historian Tom Keeley. This itinerant research organisation is interested in the echo between people and their surroundings, and what the gaze of the tourist can show us about the everyday through architectures, landscapes, histories and geographies.

KEELEY TRAVEL works in relation to one destination at a time, undertaking research projects where the process and outputs are determined by the site-specifics of the destination itself. Currently this work is centred on the border between the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. The travel agency also produces brochures that act as bulletins in relation to this work. These brochures focus on a single location or idea, physical or otherwise, and can be received by email or read online.
