Great British Escapes is a bespoke travel planning service, which specialises in arranging independent UK self-drive tours for visitors to Great Britain. All of our UK holidays are tailor-made so let us know your interests and we will use our wealth of local knowledge to create an itinerary that is perfect for you.

We have scoured the country to hand-pick fantastic accommodation, unearth the most fascinating sights and activities and track down the hidden gems for you to discover during your self-drive UK tour.
