Travel in Victorian Britain

Technically, I should title this "The British Isles," as this section includes travel "destination" articles in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and even the Channel Islands. It also offers glimpses of how Britain appears to travelers from other parts of the world.

For articles on enjoying a short holiday (often at the seaside), see the Travel Advice section.
