Our Road Trips

A Great Escape classic car driving experience gives you the chance to sample the widest range of classic cars in the UK.  Our road trips are designed for people who want to drive a range of cars on some brilliant British roads around the country.  Everything is organised for you - just turn up, grab the keys and go.

There are 15 different experiences to choose from but they all follow the same basic principle - spend a full day driving 5 classic cars over some of the country's best roads. All from just £199 including breakfast, lunch, fuel and insurance. You can even bring a passenger for just £99.

So whether you want a gentle meander around the Cotswolds on our Gardens Tour or a 200 mile blast across Wales on our Welsh Triangle event, our 2017 calendar has it all. And with a choice of classics from the 50s to 90s, Minis to Cobras, you can take yor pick of what you drive.

We have been organising events for corporate clients for many years, so it made sense to offer this experience to our private customers too.  Unlike other classic car rallies, you don't need your own car - you get to sample at least 5 classic cars from our fleet during the day.

how it works

Each Great Escape road trip follows the same proven format. Arrival is from 8.30am for breakfast and we depart at around 9.30am after a briefing session and introduction to the cars. Each drive is split into 5 or 6 stages with drivers swapping cars at the end of each stage.  There are two people per car - one person drivers while the other person navigates, with drivers swapping during the stage so that each one gets a chance to drive the car.  We stop for lunch and then continue back to the site, returning at around 4pm.  There is then some time for each driver to take a chosen car out for a short 10-15 minute drive before departing.

Cars are allocated to drivers randomly but each driver has the chance to let us know ahead of the event which cars scheduled to be on the event they particularly want to drive.  We do our best to accommodate all requests.

Every Great Escape Classic Car road trip includes a full day's driving - typically at least 100 miles - plus fuel, lunch and a guided and accompanied tour of hand-picked roads.  We carefully plan and reccie every drive to make sure the timings are accurate and the route rewarding.  Each year we choose different routes and a different range of cars - so if you've been before, it won't be the same again.

For 2017 we have doubled the number of road trips we are running to 23.  As well as weekend dates we now offer week day trips at special reduced rates.  Click on the table below for more details on each event. Or call 01527 893733 for more details. 


For 2017 we have created new routes, new themes and added new cars.  Booking available now: you can book a date or buy a voucher.  Click here to discover what's in store...
