In 1935 the recently-formed TOC undertook a tour of Europe, venturing as far as Salzburg. It promised ‘a varied panorama of the most intriguing scenery in Europe.’ Looking back, it was a momentous time for such a trip, which is recorded in an album of snapshots now in the Club’s archives. In September 2020 it is planned to recreate the trip using the same route and many of the same hotels, which still exist.
The tour originally took three weeks, but this version will be longer at four weeks to allow for some travel-free days. Participants will be able to follow the entire trip or join just for some sections. Full details of the route and timing will be published in due course. Sadly the original price of £28 2s 11d per person is unlikely to be repeated!
