Classic car enthusiasts will find no greater driving experience than this Break for the Border Road Trip, which puts them behind the wheel of five iconic vehicles. Enjoy a stint in the Jaguar E-Type, Alfa Romeo Spider, MGB Roadster, Jenson Interceptor and the HMC Healey, each car a legend in its own right. After breakfast, head out on the scenic 160 mile route through Shropshire and the Welsh Borders by way of Bromyard and Ludlow, before turning into the wilds towards Pen Y Bont for a spot of lunch at a cafe. Then follow the winding roads to New Town, returning via Bishop’s Castle, Clun and Clee Hill. With fuel and insurance included, this is a unique chance to take control of some cracking classic cars on some of Britain’s best driving roads.
