A facsimile edition of Bradshaw's Handbook of 1863, the book that inspired the BBC television series 'Great British Railway Journeys'. When Michael Portillo began the series 'Great British Railway Journeys', a well-thumbed 150-year-old book shot back to fame. The original Bradshaw's guides had been well known to Victorian travellers and were produced when the British railway network was at its peak and as tourism by rail became essential. It was the first national tourist guide specifically organized around railway journeys, and this beautifully illustrated facsimile edition offers a glimpse through the carriage window at a Britain long past.

“Highly recommended”

A nostalgic description of the railway system as it used to be. Great to dip in and out of even when planning a UK based holiday or long weekend away when not using the railways.

“Highly recommended”

This is a faithful facsimile of a great railway publication which, sadly, is no longer available. I would recommend this book to any railway enthusiast or historian.
