Discovery Travel & Living was a TV channel in the United Kingdom and Ireland and is a channel from Discovery Networks Western Europe. Discovery Travel & Living was launched as Discovery Travel & Adventure Channel on 1st October 1998[1]. In early 2005, it was repositioned and rebranded as Discovery Travel & Living as a part of a "lifestyle" package from Discovery Communications, also including Discovery Home & Health and Discovery Real Time.

Much of the schedule was taken up by programmes about real estate, most notably A Place in the Sun and its spinoffs, as well as House Doctor.

A one-hour timeshifted version named Discovery Travel & Living +1 launched on Sky on 24 November 2008.[2] The timeshift channel closed on 20 January 2009 to make way for the launch of Investigation Discovery.

The channel closed along with Discovery Real Time on 30 April 2013, to be replaced by Investigation Discovery +1.[3]
