Routes & Tours

Best Of The Guide

  • Sussex : Brighton

    This once famous resort of royalty and fashion may now, through the levelling of the railroad, be fairly entitled to the appellation of the Marine Metropolis.

  • Surrey : Crystal Palace

    The site of the Crystal Palace on the summit of Penge Park is one of the most beautiful in the world.

  • Gloucestershire : Bristol

    Cathedral city, seaport, and parliamentary borough in Gloucestershire 118 miles from London.

  • Carnarvonshire : Menai Bridge

    Two miles from Bangor, across the narrow channel which cuts off Anglesea, is best seen from the water below, above which it rises 100 feet, at high tide.

  • Carnarvonshire : Conway

    The ancient town of Conway is within the wall that were erected at the same time as the castle. Although not a manufacturing town, it has always been a place of some importance.

  • County Kerry : Killarney

    The Lakes of Killarney are three in number — the Upper, the Tore (or Middle), and the Lower; these, with their islands and other attractive objects, we shall briefly describe.
