The Bernese Oberland. Amazing Engineering and Victorian Tourism Relived

Wednesday 21 June — Sold out
Wednesday 21 to Wednesday 28 June. A visit led by Geoff Brandwood to an area of utterly spectacular scenery, taking in some jaw-dropping journeys, and experiencing the things our forebears wondered at as Switzerland opened up for better-off tourists in the late nineteenth century.

Accommodation is in the car-free village of Wengen. Among much else we will visit mountain-top sites including ascending to the Jungfraujoch by Europe’s highest railway, climb 5,500ft by steam on the Brienz Rothorn rack railway, and travel by steamer on Lakes Thun and/or Brienz. Half board £1,449 (plus (£95 single occupancy). The tour begins and ends at Basel railway station. The event is now fully booked but in case a further tour can be organised please register your interest with Geoff at *

Event code: 1799




Later event: Evening visit to St John the Divine, Richmond
Earlier event: Walk: Norland Estate, Kensington
