Armed with his copy of Bradshaw's Victorian Railway Guidebook, Michael Portillo takes to the tracks and over a series of five journeys, he travels from coast to coast to see what of Bradshaw's Britain remains. Michael's first journey follows the track that help fuel the Industrial Revolution. Beginning in the rolling Chiltern Hills, he makes his way through to the stunning Severn Valley and finishes at the Victorian sea-side resort of Aberystwyth. He then travels from port to port from the centuries old naval hub of Portsmouth to the historic Grimsby docks.
On Michael's third journey, he explores the awe inspiring scenery of rural and coastal Scotland, from Stirling in the east and ending at 'the start of Great Britain', John O' Groats. The fourth journey of the series, he retraces the footsteps of the master engineer of the Great Western Railway, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, beginning at London Paddington Station through to Newton Abbott in Devon, the scene of one of Brunel's heroic failures. In Michael's final journey, he uses 'Bradshaw's Handbook for Tourists in Great Britain and Ireland' as he journeys through the Republic of Ireland from Killarney to Galway on the Atlantic Coast.
