THOMAS COOK'S VICTORIAN TOURS...

Thomas Cook (1808-1892) Package holidays may seem to be a modern construct, but their origins go back over many centuries, very often being organised for mass religious pilgrimages. The Victorian Thomas Cook was no exception to this rule when he founded his own company to provide travel arrangements that were ‘simple, easy and a pleasure’ and in which he was ‘the willing and devoted servant of the travelling public’.
