Tourers will be able to explore the UK like never before with three new UK escorted tours that have been carefully created by the Club’s trusted travel team and are on sale now, exclusively for members from £849 for an outfit and two people.

Each itinerary makes the most of in-depth local knowledge across the Home Counties, York, County Durham and Edinburgh and gives tourers plenty of time to explore the great outdoors in between sightseeing.

The tour price includes your pitch at campsites, Blue Badge Guided tours, entrance and transport to and from excursions, all giving you more for your money on a relaxing hassle-free tour.

All escorted tours are also ABTA protected for financial peace of mind.
