In the 1800’s, Scotland was regarded by English tourists as an exotic destination. Making the short journey over the Union Bridge at Berwick was to pass from one world into another: from England, where they felt secure in known routines, to Scotland: a very different world of novelty and adventure. To find out about the allure of Scotland for early tourists, Paul boards a traditional gypsy caravan to travel through Kelso, Melrose, New Lanark and up to Glasgow.
