Our route takes us over varied terrain through 16 counties! Most roads are fine, but some are very narrow with ‘passing places’. This trip is designed to be taken at a relaxed pace, stopping frequently to take in the views, walk on a beach, visit a castle, take a photograph etc. Please give us a call to find out more.

Daily mileages vary. Some may be challenging but you should still arrive at your hotel with time to socialise. There should be no night driving (unless you get totally lost). There are no time constraints or destination arrival deadlines, Whether you’re a group of mates or a couple, everyone is welcome.
