[ ... back to main menu for this book]

Excursions.óThe following are some of the pleasantest excursions available within a short distance of London; the fares, &c., being compiled from official returns furnished, at the Editorís request, by the traffic managers of the various railway companies concerned. The fares quoted are those for the ordinary trains. To most of the places, however, in the following list, special trains are run in holiday seasons at greatly reduced charges, and for the most part with extension of time for return tickets. Full particulars of these will be found, as the respective seasons approach, in the companiesí time-tables and the advertisement columns of the daily papers.
