Why does George IV's Royal Pavilion look so different from other British royal palaces. What happened at the Seven Sisters Cliffs. What is a Smugglers Pub. Who wouldn't sit under a dragon. Where did Sherlock Holmes retire. And what does the Guinness family have to do with a medieval hotel.
Who stole the famous Ghent Altarpiece, and who recovered it. And who is restoring it. What is Prinsenhof, and why is it so pretty. Where did the famous Ghent Dragon fly in from. Why is Ghent so famous for its lace. Why is St. Peters Abbey so important to Ghent history.
England's Great West Way follows the ancient path from London to Bristol. A train is taken and stops along the way include Stonehenge; Bath's masonic architecture; the Roman Baths; and the S.S. Great Britain. Pub pies are sampled; cockney rhyming slang is taught; and a few charming villages are visited.
