about this item

A must-have purchase for any armchair fan of unique and award-winning travel programming.

Great Continental Railway Journeys is now a firmly established series on BBC2, following in the illustrious tracks of its predecessor—Great British Railway Journeys. Both series are fronted by ex-politician Michael Portillo and in this European odyssey he travels around continental Europe, using George Bradshaw’s 1913 Continental Railway Guide. Now coming up for its fourth instalment this autumn, Portillo guides the train-travelling fan across Europe arriving at a myriad of magical and historically fascinating cities we all dream of travelling to by train.

From London, to Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Copenhagen, Oslo, Lisbon, Madrid, Berlin, Monte Carlo, Prague, Munich, Zurich, Rome, Budapest, St. Petersburg; all the way down to Constantinople, Haifa, and Jerusalem—Portillo describes the great feats of engineering that built the various railway lines connecting Europe and further afield and the men and women who made these journeys famous through their deeds and words.

This audiobook covers every single journey Portillo has undertaken across Europe. Capturing all the colour, beauty, excitement, and fervour of journeying across this historic continent can muster.
