Crossing continents - a great year of driving with Bentley

A range of experiences for you and your Continental Grand Tourer

Time behind the wheel of the consummate British Grand Tourer is always an enjoyable experience and Bentley is offering customers and driving enthusiasts a range of unique driving experiences in 2014; from exclusive luxury breaks to bespoke routes around the world designed by the company’s driving experts.

These new luxury breaks, which can be viewed on our Bentley Events pages,  are in partnership with some of Europe’s finest hotels, private houses and luxury brands. The ‘Secret Britain’ tour begins with the cream of London fine dining and hospitality, including a private lunch in the Bentley Room at the award-winning Mosimann’s restaurant, shopping at Harrods and staying at one of London's finest hotels.

The ‘Guest of Chanel’ tour is a tempting combination of great Bentley touring through France with a range of indulgent breaks en route to Paris hand-picked to showcase the best of French culture, fashion, cuisine and hospitality as exemplified by the iconic Chanel fashion house.

Italian Legend pays homage to both a great driver and an extraordinary race. The five-day tour is inspired by the epic 1,000 mile Italian road race the Mille Miglia and Sir Stirling Moss’s famous 1955 victory.

For those driving enthusiasts who want the freedom to travel at their own pace and in their own time, Bentley is publishing some great drives selected by the company’s road-testers.

The Luxury of Spontaneity series (dedicated to the company’s Continental range) is available on-line and begins with two routes from opposite sides of the world. There is a 130 mile (210km) drive through the Mediterranean sunshine on the island of Mallorca and also a classic 745 mile (1199km) American road trip from San Francisco all the way through to the bright lights of Las Vegas.

Upcoming additions to this series of inspiring drives (due to be published throughout the year) include a desert adventure in Oman, an Australian drive from Melbourne to Adelaide and routes in Malaysia, Scotland and Canada.
