Back to Days out

A classic Surrey day out

Luxury country house hotels and classic sports cars go together like jam and clotted cream. Just add scones, and you've got yourself the perfect day out.

What could be more quintessentially English than a luxury country house hotel and a classic sports car? Nothing right! Except maybe the addition of a classic cream tea for afternoon nibbling.

With that in mind it’s only right that we share our insider knowledge on the ultimate English day out – combining cool classic cars from RNG Classics, great food and gorgeous scenery. Interested? Lean in close and we’ll tell you more.

But first, what is your classic car of choice? The 1971 Triumph Spitfire, styled by the legendary Giovanni Michelotti, and the ultimate in Seventies chic with black leather interiors and beautiful ivory exterior? The Ferrari 308 – the iconic ride sported by Magnum PI? The E-Type Jag – the epitome of Sixties pace and grace. Or maybe it’s the BMW Z3 Roadster, a car loved by James Bond?

It’s a jaunt back to the Seventies in a stunning Spitfire for us. Driving gloves at the ready, head scarf on – we’re going touring.

But first, what is your classic car of choice? The 1969 E-Type Jaguar – the epitome of Sixties pace and grace. Or maybe it’s the iconic Porsche 356a Speedster loved by Hollywood A list and made legendary by James Dean and Janis Joplin. Or an awe inspiring 80’s classic Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet?

It’s a jaunt back to the late sixties in the stunning E-Type Jag for us. Driving gloves at the ready, head scarf and oversized sunglasses on – we’re going touring.

This would be a great gift for that difficult-to-buy-for person in your life, or -even better – a gift for yourself and a loved one.

The tour starts at either Great Fosters in Egham or Barnett Hill near Guilford where you’ll collect your classic car before heading off into the Surrey Hills, wending your way through some of the prettiest English villages to the other venue.

An indulgent three-course lunch awaits, followed by a stroll in the grounds, if you fancy, before heading off on your return journey.

There’s a cream tea packed in the boot of the car – so you can stop along the way when you find the perfect picnic spot, or when you feel peckish.

The Classic Car Touring Day and Lunch starts at £488 for the day for two people – including lunch and afternoon tea. Its redeemable from 4 Jan – 22 Oct 2022. greatfosters.co.uk
