Travellers have always held a certain allure, their nomadic spirits capturing the imagination of those who long for adventure and freedom. From catching the 5:15 at Liverpool Street to Ulverston Sands in 1835, as depicted by David Cox the elder, these wanderers have traversed landscapes far and wide. Gypsies and their caravans evoke images of a bygone era, with an Irish Cob horse proudly pulling their colourful abode towards Appleby Horse Fair. The Ejiri in Suruga Province painting from the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji transports us to ancient Japan, where travellers sought solace amidst breathtaking scenery. Even closer to home, Romany gypsy families camped on Epsom Downs during race meetings on Epsom Racecourse. Their vibrant caravans and tents added a touch of magic to this already enchanting event. Belvedere Marshes in Kent became a temporary haven for gypsy caravans and tents, creating a picturesque scene against nature's backdrop. The tales of highwaymen like Dick Turpin meeting fellow outlaw Tom King remind us that not all they were bound by conventional rules. These daring individuals roamed the highways under moonlit skies, leaving behind legends that still captivate our imaginations today. But it is not just humans who embody the spirit of travel; fairies too find solace in meadows adorned with flowers as depicted in Fairies of the Meadow (1850). Even advertisements for hotels like Baron Hotel in Aleppo transport us through time and space, enticing us to embark on new journeys filled with discovery. Closer to modern times, Clarendon Square in Leamington showcases how even urban spaces can become playgrounds for travellers seeking respite from everyday life. And let's not forget intrepid women like Olive MacLeod who ventured into Africa alone in 1911 as "The Lady Traveller, " defying societal norms while exploring the vastness of the continent.
