It is now just over a decade since the much-loved Great British Railway Journeys series set off on its incredible run discovering the United Kingdom's cultural history through the prism of George Bradshaw's Railway Guide Book.

Michael Portillo has since presented ten seasons of this ever-popular show on BBC Two, covering every part of the existing train network in Britain, as well as others that were closed as a result of the Beeching Report in 1963. Across a decade of these journeys, Michael has discovered the historical and cultural past of every corner of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, giving railway fans a unique insight into our shared past of train travel since the Victorian era.

With the anniversary, a new book will celebrate Michael's top fifty journeys from the hundreds he has covered, supported with colour illustrations and maps.

It is the ideal Christmas gift.
