The Trafalgar Way Virtual Challenge represents a famous 271-mile journey from history. It all began in 1805 with the messenger who returned to England from the Battle of Trafalgar bearing epic news of victory and tragedy. Over 200 years later, the adventure continues with you, as you follow his overland journey from Falmouth to London, stage by stage, just like him!
The messenger landed at Falmouth and travelled by carriage to the Admiralty in London. His journey was 271 miles, took 38 hours, and required 21 changes of horses along the way. Find out more about this fascinating story from history at The Trafalgar Way
