Slow Train to Switzerland: One Tour, Two Trips, 150 Years – and a World of Chang by Diccon Bewes



ISBN: 9781857886511 Category: Tags: ,


Diccon Bewes embarks on a historical train ride following the route taken by Thomas Cook in the 19th century. Cook began his first ever tour in 1863 – the round trip would take 3 weeks and was a rail journey travelling from London to Lucerne. The success of this tour meant that Cook became a household name and gave rise to modern mass tourism. With the aid of a diary written by a female passenger documenting the trip day by day, Diccon Bewes follows the footsteps of these early tourists.
