Hello and welcome

My name is Charlotta Buxton. I’m a journalist and writer in London.

I’m the UK correspondent for the Swedish national newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. I also write for the Finnish Swedish broadsheet Hufvudstadsbladet. Since starting to work as a freelancer in London ten years ago I have covered riots and royal weddings. I have interviewed nuns in council flats and happy Glaswegians in the early hours of a Saturday morning.

Over the last few years I have written many stories about Brexit and I’ve travelled across the country to talk to both those who oppose and those who support Britain’s exit from the EU. Those stories and more can be found in my book “Landet som äter sig självt” (The Country Eating Itself) out in August 2020.

My book “Det finns inga britter” (There are no Brits) was published in 2013. It’s a journey across the British isles and a study of what it means to be British in the years leading up to the Scottish independence referendum.

I love folklore, historical tidbits and any book that will teach me something new about the world. In my weekly newsletter I share some of the random things I find in my ever increasing pile of books. If that sounds like your cup of tea you can find out more about how to sign up here.

If you would like to get in touch you can find me on twitter @charlottabuxton.
