New Resource on the Grand Tour

by

The Grand Tour, the 18th-century aristocratic rite of passage retraced earlier this year for Channel 4 by Kevin McCloud, is the focus of a new digital resource.

Produced by Adam Matthew Digital, The Grand Tour collates letters, diaries, printed guidebooks, travel writing, maps, paintings and architectural plans within one searchable, online website, and is reviewed here by Katy Layton-Jones of the University of Leicester.
