Abstract:

Over nine well-known railway lines, Charlie Bunce and Michael Portillo discover the incredible impact the railways had on Victorian Britain and are struck by their lasting legacy today. The railway has played a crucial part in shaping the course of British history. It turned sleepy fishing villages into bustling seaside resorts, brought post, beer and chocolate to the masses, evacuated thousands of children during the Second World War, inspired feats of engineering and launched Britain into an industrial revolution that dramatically transformed the nation's future. Great British Railway Journeys offers a unique look at the history of Britain, all from the seat of a train.
