Bentley has announced its Extraordinary Journey UK, a five day/four night road trip that will take you from Bentley’s home in Crewe, Cheshire, England to The Macallan Estate in Speyside, Scotland. The journey will take its guest through a number of scenic destinations such as the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the Cairngorms while also enjoying meals throughout the day that have been whipped up by world-renowned chefs. And of course, you’ll be able to enjoy your trip in one of the latest Bentley models, which include the Bentayga, Flying Spur, and the Continental GT.
Arriving in Cheshire, guests will be greeted by the Bentley event team at the brand’s flagship CW1 House showroom in Crewe. Private entry to the Bentley factory will bring you up close with the craftsmanship that goes into every car and let you explore the vast grounds, seeing our sustainability commitments in action. The evening will conclude with an intimate private dinner within the factory itself.
After a leisurely private breakfast, we’ll escort you to collect your private Bentley before driving in convoy into the Peak District National Park, characterised by its outstanding natural scenery.
Lunch will be at the elegant Northcote, hosted by British chef Lisa Goodwin Allen in its Michelin-starred restaurant.
