are delighted to announce the book launch (the first in Switzerland!) and reading of
Slow Train to Switzerland – One Tour, Two Trips, 150 Years and a World of Change Apart
by Travel Writer Diccon Bewes (Author of Swiss Watching/ Le Suissologue)
On the occasion of the 150th anniversary Thomas Cook’s pioneering trip to Switzerland, Diccon will talk about how he embarked on a historical train ride following the first ever conducted tour taken by Thomas Cook in 1863, a three week trip from London to Lucerne. It’s a tale of trains and tourists, of the British and the Swiss, of a Victorian traveller and a modern-day Englishman abroad. It’s the story of a tour that changed both Switzerland and the world of travel forever.
