Grand Tour  🎓

Connect to Resource

Taking the phenomenon of the Grand Tour as a starting point, this resource explores the relationship between Britain and Europe between c1550 and c1850, exploring the British response to travel on the Continent for pleasure, business and diplomacy. The Grand Tour was a rite-of-passage for many aristocratic and wealthy young men: a phenomenon which influenced British art, architecture, urban planning, literature and philosophy.
