- In the reign of Queen Victoria (1837 - 1901) travel was a favourite pastime. The Victorians continued the tradition of the Grand Tour, making leisurely and extensive journeys to all parts of the world. They frequented such fashionable cities and resorts such as Venice, Deauville, Pompeii and Nice. They sailed on the Nile, they explored in Africa; they attended viceregal garden parties in India; they spent warm weather months in Kashmir and they enjoyed long sea voyages. Scenes and vignettes from earlier times.
