In this extract we read about Montpellier's musical promenades: 'the Pump Rooms and Promenade Walk are brilliantly lighted up, and the scene is, altogether, one in which the visitor may spend and hour of delightful and innocent recreation.'

About The Visitor's Handbook for Cheltenham


This guide to Cheltenham provides the reader with information on the town's spas, pump rooms, churches and places of fashion and amusement. As stated in the 'advertisement', the author intends to avoid 'those grandiloquent descriptions of scenery and objects which generally distinguish the adulatory style of provincial Guides, aiming rather to be correct than elegant.'
