Forthcoming Tours & Events

All tours start from London unless stated otherwise, but may sometimes be joined en-route

RAIL ALE RAMBLES: Our RARs (primarily day trips by train, sometimes with an overnight option), to interesting real ale breweries and pubs, remain our mainstay and we have now organised over 200 of them since 1977. These tours may be arranged at quite short notice, so check back often.

WEEKEND EXPLORERS: Long weekend trips, in the UK and Europe, visiting interesting breweries and pubs with added rail or cultural interest such as steam railways, narrow gauge lines, tram systems, funiculars, boat travel or museums.

EXPLORER HOLIDAYS: 1 or 2 weeks or perhaps longer, to destinations primarily in Britain but occasionally to Europe and beyond, usually with brewery visits and rail interest.



Since the pandemic, we have successfully run twelve full RARs and small-scale day trips, two Weekend Explorers and one full Explorer Holiday. Last year we have run a number of Real Ale Rambles (including the major milestone of our 200th RAR!) and an extended holiday to South West Scotland. This year, we have run a holiday to East Devon, an RAR to Buckinghamshire and Berkshire as well as assisting the Brewery History Society with their visit to Antwerp and Brugge. We are also organising a visit to Minehead using some exclusive local accommodation. Other RARs will be planned for later this year make sure you are on our mailing list (contact us on to be the first to hear of these and future tours!).
