You will be greeted personally and taken on a private tour of the factory.  Next, you'll head into the heart of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, tackling the finest driving roads in the whole of the UK with beautiful mountain passes and lakeside drives aplenty. Finally, make your way south through Wales, looping around the isolated Elan Valley with its Victorian reservoirs and dams, before completing the tour with a run through the Brecon Beacons, finishing in the historic city of Bath where the tour ends.

The perfect car for the perfect roads - the quintessential British driving tour.

Morgan Driving Tour - Cotswolds & Welsh Mountains

Day 1 – Arrivals to the Malvern Hills & Visit to Morgan HQ

Head by car directly to the Malvern Hills region, and the Morgan HQ, set just outside the beautiful village of Malvern, arriving at 2 pm. Once at the recently re-opened and fully modernized Visitor Center you will be met and welcomed with coffee, where your personalised roadbook for the trip will be shared with you.

Next, it's time to enjoy your private guided tour of the factory, where you will experience a first-hand introduction to the making of the Morgan cars - the tour itself takes between 90min and 2hours, depending of course on the number of questions you might have.... 

After the tour is over, enjoy a coffee at the Morgan Experience center, before receiving a walkthrough of your tour and car handover by your Drive Concierge from Morgan.   Head back to your nearby hotel for the evening.

OVERNIGHT:  4 Star Superior Stanbrook Abbey Hotel

Day 2 – Tour 1 - through the Shropshire Hills and into Snowdonia

The following morning you will be on your way!  Your first drive takes you directly west, passing through the beautiful Shropshire Hills as you make your way towards the Snowdonia National Park and mountain region.  Once into the park, you will drive a scenic loop of some of the region’s finest roads, including probably the best driving road in Wales, the B4391.    

These are roads famously driven by the likes of Evo and Top Gear when testing their cars – the road surfaces are some of the most exemplary in the UK and the light traffic makes them a delight to drive.  Along the way you will enjoy lunch in the heart of the mountains, visit several sights of historical significance.  After completing the loop, head across to one of the finest hotels in North Wales, the Relais & Chateaux Pale Hall where you will be based for the evening, directly on the edge of Snowdonia National Park.

OVERNIGHT:  4 Star Superior Pale Hall, Bala, Snowdonia region 

Day 3 – Elan Valley & Brecon Beacons

Your second drive takes you south from Bala, with the first port of call at the Elan Valley. This isolated valley with a lake/reservoir is one of the best-kept secrets in Wales – with its series of delightful Victorian Dams and reservoirs, it’s the perfect photo opportunity for you and the car in total isolation. You will drive a delightful loop around the lake.

Next turn due south towards the Brecon Beacons National Park where you will encounter another series of delightful mountain roads, including the most famous of them all - the Black Mountain Pass, made famous by the UK Top Gear team back in the nineties as one of the best driving roads in the UK.  Stop for lunch in the heart of the National Park for lunch with views across the rolling peaks.

After lunch, turn east and head back into England, crossing the spectacular Seven Bridge before arriving in the city of Bath, where you will spend the evening at the Roseate Villa Hotel – just a 5mins walk from the historic center. 

OVERNIGHT: 4 Star Superior The Roseate Villa Bath

Day 4 – The Cotswolds

Your final drive will be a leisurely cruise through one of the most beautiful regions of England, the Cotswolds.  This journey will take you south-north along the entire length of the region and showcase all that is quintessentially English in this verdant and lush part of the country.

The drive starts by taking you out from Bath to the beautiful village of Castle Combe, where you can park up and stroll around the picture-postcard village – one of the most attractive in the UK.  From here, head through Badminton, home to the famous Horse Trials to the beautiful village of Tetbury, where we recommend you stop for a light refreshment at the Royal Oak, one of the most scenic Inns in the Cotswolds.

Now the roads start to really open out, with fine views across the Cotswolds driving stone-walled roads.  Continue north through  Cirencester and along to Bourton-on-the-Water, where you will stop for lunch – often referred to as a little Venice in England, this really is a most scenic place to spend a few hours enjoying lunch.

Lunch over, make a loop of the region surrounding the village of Broadway, stopping by at the Broadway Tower, before continuing your drive back to Morgan HQ at Malvern, where the car is dropped back at around 17:00.  After the drop-off, return to the Stanbrook Abbey for a final evening.  After settling into your hotel, take a short stroll downtown for dinner.

OVERNIGHT:  4 Star Superior Stanbrook Abbey Hotel
