Join Toby and Tourist host, Vic Elizabeth Turnbull for a travel guide like no other, as they take you to Hat Works, the beacon of the Stockport skyline. The museum is one of the only collections in the world dedicated to the hatting industry.

Discover, how hats went from rabbit to head and what this Northern English town had to do with it all. Plus, listen out for Toby who gets reunited with his very, first hat.

The tour also includes why museums are a safe option for the nervous traveller; Dr Who hat japery; plenty of nostalgia for the good old days and beavers, yes beavers.

Travel with Tourist

Tourist is a travel podcast with a (fun) difference, with comedians as your tour guide! The likes of Christian Reilly, Hayley Ellis and Daliso Chapando have all been on trips with Tourist. These funny humans have visited places such as the home of bad-ass Victorian author Elizabeth Gaskell; downed funky cocktails in a Launderette and gone on the search for the best pie in Wigan.

Why don’t you jump on board. Binge the podcast right here (just don’t go swimming straight after or you’ll sink!)
