Michael Portillo takes to the tracks once again using his Bradshaw’s ‘Handbook for Tourists in Great Britain and Ireland’ from the Victorian era. Portillo is on a railway journey through the Republic of Ireland, travelling from the rugged beauty of County Kerry, across the rural Irish Midlands, to end in the city of Galway on the Atlantic coast.

In this episode, Michael tries his hand at cutting marble Victorian style, uncovers 19th-century Ireland’s surprising industrial heritage and learns how the railways helped bring motorsport to the masses.
