The Grand Tour – what the British got up to abroad
Looking back on the Georgian European vacation with the historian Jeremy Black
Much of Europe is now open again for British summer holiday-makers. But how different are the aims and experience of leisure travellers to Europe now compared to the 18th century?
The Critic‘s political editor, Graham Stewart, talks to Professor Jeremy Black, author of The British Abroad, Italy and the Grand Tour, France and the Grand Tour and most recently, A Short History of the Mediterranean about what British travellers used to get up to abroad.
