Great British Escapes designs individually tailor-made UK holidays and UK self-drive tours.

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.

If you would like some inspiration or are looking for some ideas of where to go and what to do, have a look at our example itineraries and places of interest sections. Alternatively, just get in touch and we would be happy to suggest some ideas for your tailor-made UK holiday.

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.

No two Great British Escapes are the same. All you need to do is let us know what you want from your self-drive UK tour and we will create a once in a lifetime experience to suit you.
