The rise of fall of George Hudson the Railway King

George Hudson (probably 10 March 1800 – 14 December 1871) was an English railway financier and politician who, because he controlled a significant part of the railway network in the 1840s, became known as “The Railway King”—a title conferred on him by Sydney Smith in 1844.

Chris will be in costume in the Room.

This will be a hybrid meeting where members can either join the meeting in the room or via Zoom.


Please complete the form below if you wish to attend either in the Room or on Zoom.
