Bradshaw's Guide was the title employed on BBC TV in 2010 for a book containing four issues of Bradshaw's Handbook for Railway Tourists, bound especially for the series.

The book covers Great Britain plus all of Ireland and describes the main features and historic buildings of the principle towns, in the flowery style of a well spoken Victorian person. The main inns are mentioned, along with the location of telegraph offices, so important before telephones.

The 14 pages of multiple illustrations are shown in a separate section, as are the 18 double-page maps. The announcements by many of the railway companies regarding tours and special arrangements are included, many being particularly imaginative and detailed.

The advertisements by hoteliers give an interesting insight into life in those times and the expectations of travellers. The final fascinating pages include general advertisements for cures for health problems and the newly created kitchen range (cooker).
