Abercrombie & Kent says

Anyone can put together a tour in the UK, right? Well, yes you can, but not the A&K way! We do things a little differently and always strive to create holidays with unique experiences, special added touches and creative itineraries which take you to places you might not otherwise be able to reach.

  • Self-drive
  • Luxury hotels
  • Gourmet dining

New for 2020 is our selection of unique UK self-drive and private escorted tours, from the Golden Age of motoring to southern England’s most spectacular private gardens.

The Best of British is something truly special. This nine-night luxury road trip is packed with the finest hospitality experiences in some of the UK’s most beautiful places.

Your holiday kicks off in style with two nights at Beaverbrook, the magnificent Victorian pile in Surrey where the service is as outstanding as the setting – and you won’t want to miss cocktails in the fabulous Art Deco bar.

As you drive on to the Lake District, stop off for a five-course lunch at Raymond Blanc’s Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons before arriving at Holbeck Ghyll, a stylish boutique hotel located between Ambleside and Lake Windermere. After a couple of days hiking, pampering in the spa or simply gazing at the endless views, there’s a gentle drive north to Gleneagles in Scotland for three nights, perhaps via a visit to Stirling Castle.

Your last two nights are in the Yorkshire Dales, based at the Grade II listed Grantley Hall – renowned for its superb spa and Japanese garden, created in 1910.
