Journeys: Reading the World

View online
ADD TO TRIP

Indulge a journey of armchair tourism and escapism with the help of a new online exhibition from Palace Green Library at Durham University.

If you are bored of being stuck at home, why not set sail on a voyage around the globe with their new online exhibition Journeys: Reading the World. Travel from your armchair and explore the ways people have planned and prepared for journeys throughout history and the written works that have paved the way for the travel resources we are familiar with today.

The fascinating exhibition has been curated using the books, manuscripts and archives from the Durham University Special Collections. Those of you who have missed a year of art, culture and discovery will enjoy the immersive online exhibition which offers top tips for travellers across the centuries and explores debates around the value and danger of foreign travel. There is also a chance to take a unique tour of 18th century Italy, seen through the eyes of lucky travellers able to visit at the time.

The exhibition is the perfect rainy day activity. Forget lockdown and leave your home, work and troubles behind as you experience the thrill of heading out on this journey.
