Rick Steves advocates smart, affordable, perspective-broadening travel. As host and writer of the popular public television series RICK STEVES' EUROPE, and best-selling author of 40 European travel books, he encourages Americans to travel as "temporary locals."

He helps American travelers connect much more intimately and authentically with Europe — and Europeans — for a fraction of what mainstream tourists pay.

Rick Goes On A Soho Dinner Crawl

In this episode, we whisper secrets across the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral and eat our way through Soho.

Then we check out the treasures of the new British Library, roll with the drums at the Changing of the Guard, and cruise the Thames to Kew Gardens.

Rick Explores Treasures Of The British Library

The British Library — Britain's national archive — houses over 12 million books and a roomful of treasures, including the Magna Carta, Gutenberg Bible, Handel's Messiah, da Vinci's Notebook, and the original Alice in Wonderland.

Past episodes and clips of RICK STEVES' EUROPE are available for online viewing.
