TRAVEL photographs documenting Edward VII’s expedition to far-flung parts of the globe are to go on display.

Photography may have been in its infancy in the 1860s but when the future monarch journeyed to the Middle East as a young man he was joined by British photographer Francis Bedford.

Edward, then the Prince of Wales, travelled to Egypt, Palestine and the Holy Land, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and Greece in 1862.
