This talk recounts visits by European travellers to Welsh estates and the surrounding areas, focusing on the emergence of these locations as tourism spots as early as two hundred years ago. In addition, historic travel accounts by European trallers also contain descriptions of visits to sites of industrial production as locations that provided an onslaught on all senses, much like modern adventure tourism in Wales.
