Are you a "discerning tourist" out for some "unsurpassed delight"? Then come on a journey through the north of the West Country - Cheddar Gorge, Cheltenham, Tewksbury - and other hot spots along the routes of the film's sponsor, The Great Western Railway. While the film boats some beautiful stencil colour, sadly time has not been kind to this surviving copy, which is also incomplete.
