Event Details

The Golden Age of Travel  – A Talk by Paul Atterbury Presented by the Golden Cap Association (West Dorset) The 1920’s and 1930’s were very much The Golden Age of Travel with Cunard, the Orient Express, Pullman trains and flying boats.  Paul will embark on an alluring journey into this golden age of great ocean liners and luxury rail travel. Paul famously presented a television programme on the BBC whilst travelling on board a train headed by the iconic steam locomotive ‘The Flying Scotsman’ .

Despite never having an ambition to appear on television, Paul in his ‘trademark’ striped blazers  has been on  the ‘Antiques Roadshow’ team for over 25 years.

Paul, now based in Weymouth, used to live in Eype and has published books of old postcards showing Eype and West Bay.  His books on travel include Country Railways, Branch Line Britain, and Exploring Britain’s Canals.

Non-members welcome. Admission £3. Includes tea or coffee and biscuits.
