We are excited to present our new selection of UK cycling tours in some of our favourite picturesque pockets of English countryside. We hope these offer you the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air on a luxurious cycling holiday that is a little closer to home.
Our itineraries tick off a sumptuous selection of historic landmarks such as the iconic Arundel Castle and the chalky white Seven Sisters cliffs.
When you have had your fill, return to our hand-picked boutique spa hotels and classic English country houses where you can indulge in an award-winning spa treatment, a deluxe three-course evening meal or a dip in the outdoor pool complete with luscious green country vistas.
These destinations are accessible by rail or car within the UK, meaning you can relax and enjoy the privacy of your own space on your journey. Not only does this offer great value for money, switching a flight for a train journey has added sustainability benefits and reduces the overall carbon footprint of your holiday.
