Touring by car

Travelling with your own Blue Badge driver-guide is the ultimate way to tour. All the knowledge of a qualified gay or lesbian guide combined with the luxury and convenience of being chauffeur-driven by private car at a time and pace to suit you. If you are short of time in London and want to see as much as possible then this is definitely the way to do it.

This is also by far the best way to visit out-of-town sites. We pick you up and drop you off when and where you want. There are many castles, historic buildings, gardens and villages that are inaccessible by coach tours or public transport. There is no set tour. And, of course, we know the best country pubs and restaurants for lunch. Come with us for a day or why not several days? Typically day trips include: Hampton Court Palace, Windsor Castle, Canterbury Cathedral and Dover Castle.

Kent countryside and stately homes and gardens. There are many to choose from: Winston Churchill’s Chartwell, Anne Boleyn’s Hever Castle, Penshurst Place, Leeds Castle, Sissinghurst Gardens and many more.

Heading west try Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral and the City of Bath, or perhaps Oxford and the Cotswold villages.

Of course if you have a few days to spare then we can see so much more. We could head all the way to Cornwall, in the very south-west, or drive to the Highlands of Scotland visiting historic cities such as York or Chester on the way or even the Lake District. The beauty of touring for several days is having the pleasure of staying in some of the country’s finest and most tranquil boutique hotels.

If that is not far enough then how about going to France and beyond. Between us we have been taking cultural tours, mainly in France and Italy, for many years. The Normandy Beaches or touring in wine country are both popular choices.
