Traveling is hard work nowadays. With the modern pandemic climate not doing us any favors when it comes to our attempts to get away, it’s about time someone stepped up to provide an ideal vacation that can make up for some lost time. Well, leave it up to the folks at Bentley to provide such an incredible getaway package. With the revered automaker’s announcement of its Extraordinary Journey UK, the British marque looks to take you across its stomping grounds in one of its newest models.
Spanning a self-proclaimed “five unforgettable days,” the trip kicks off when guests arrive in Cheshire upon being greeted by Bentley’s event team, who then show you around the company’s emblematic CW1 House showroom and factory, granting the opportunity to dine in the latter come the evening. On Day 2, attendees will finish up their lavish breakfast en route to picking up their private Bentley and then head for the lush Peak District National Park. This is followed up by lunch at a Michelin-starred eatery and a night spent at the opulent Middleton Lodge.
Once guests depart from the hotel, they will head to Scotland and stay at The Treehouses of Lanrick for a woodland retreat, as well as a dinner with celebrity chef Tony Singh. On the fourth day, participants will visit The Cairngorms, Great Britain’s largest national park, for the opportunity to admire the gorgeous mountainside and wildlife. Next on the itinerary is a trip to The Macallan’s Distillery, where guests will be able to experience “a bespoke lunch,” a tour, and even a tutored smell and taste testing of the brand’s single malt whisky. The final night is rounded out by dinner at The Macallan Estate and a stay at Rothes Glen, a literal castle.
Bentley’s Extraordinary Journey UK will be operating at four different junctures throughout 2022, with the first trip taking place between June 7th and 11th. Those interested in partaking in this luxurious trip are welcome to register their interest on Bentley’s website, where the attendance price is listed at $15,354, accounting for two people sharing.
