Travelogue 1921 4 mins Silent


All aboard the no. 80 for a tour of some of Surrey's finest villages. Our starting point is Sutton in South West London, with fleeting stops at Banstead, Burgh Heath, Tadworth, Walton-on-the-Hill, and see if you can glimpse Reigate Castle. The London General Omnibus Company (LGOC) ran circular day trips from London to the surrounding countryside, and sponsored this travelogue to entice viewers to use the service.

According to a contemporary newspaper article the trips were reasonably priced and inclusive of lunch and tea en route. No wonder they were so popular!
