Bradshaw’s descriptive railway handbook of Great Britain and Ireland, a tourist guide to rail travel and the star of the television series Great British Railway Journey, has been enlarged into this facsimile edition of the original 1861 printing. Produced in 1861 at the time that the railways became essential for tourism as well as infrastructure, this addition to the collection provides a chance to explore what is now common, through the eyes of a nation for whom rail travel was still a novelty of the age. This enlarged facsimile provides a fascinating view of railway travel in the 19th century.

Bradshaw's guide to London was published in a single volume as a handbook for visitors to the capital, and it includes beautiful engravings of London attractions, a historical overview of the city, and lots of other information relating to London theatres, Hackney carriages, omnibuses, London churches and even banks. There is also advice for tourists on coping with London smog, avoiding pickpockets, dealing with London's muddy streets and ferocious din, and many other topics - some just as useful today as they were in 1862! The main body of the book focuses on a series of 'walking tours' radiating outwards from the centre of London, covering the North, East, South and West, The City of London and a tour of the Thames (from Greenwich to Windsor). All major attractions and districts are covered in detailed pages full of picturesque description. This reformatted edition preserves the historical value of this meticulously detailed and comprehensive book, which will appeal to Bradshaw's enthusiasts, local historians, aficionados of Victoriana, tourists and Londoners alike - there really is something for everyone. It will enchant anyone with an interest in the capital and its rich history.

A superb and wonderfully illustrated guide to Britain's villages, towns and connecting railways, dating from 1866. Unavailable for many years and much sought after, this classic guide book is now faithfully reissued for a new generation Bradshaw's Railway Handbook was originally published in 1866 under the title Bradshaw's Handbook for Tourists in Great Britain and Ireland. It appeared in four volumes as a comprehensive handbook for domestic tourists, and includes beautiful engravings of English cathedrals, castles and other views along with maps, period advertisements and nostalgic descriptions of English life, all set in charming Victorian typefaces. As a companion to the first two volumes (London ands its environs and Tours in North and South Wales), Conway is proud to announce the reissue of the third volume of this series, which focuses on 'Tours in Hertford, Buckingham, Northampton, Warwick, Stafford, Chester and the Northern Counties of Scotland' – but actually deals with a broad swathe of English and Scottish metropolitan, suburban and rural landscape full of fascinating period detail. This rare and much- sought-after tome is the very same book that Michael Portillo carried and referred to throughout his 'Great British Railway Journeys' series. Now available to a new generation of readers, it will appeal to railway, steam and transport enthusiasts, local historians, and anyone with an interest in British heritage, the Victorian period, or the nation's industrial past.
