Originally planned as a travelogue, this book turned into a literary classic, thanks to the narrator's humourous digressions, segueing into the historical background of some places. It is sprinkled with his own musings as they cross Hampton Court Palace, Monkey Island, Magna Carta Island, and Marlow, and little villages and other known landmarks on the way. The three men in the novel are based on real-life characters: Jerome himself; and his two friends, George Wingrave and Carl Hentschel.

It has been translated into several languages, and remains to this day, a favourite classic for many.
