At long last the weather is beginning to improve and our thoughts are turning to fresh air and balmy days. So why not make the most of the breath-taking countryside, world class sporting events and magnificent historic venues that England has to offer by getting together with a group of friends or family and hiring a coach for a day out?

There are so many places to visit within easy reach of Surrey and Hampshire and hiring a coach will save the stress of driving, the hassle of parking and the possibility of losing someone along the way!

There is so much delightful countryside to choose from: The New Forest and South Downs National Parks, seaside resorts such as Brighton or Eastbourne or the gentler pleasures of West Wittering and Swanage. You might even like to add a sea crossing to your coach adventure and take a tour of the Isle of Wight!

If your tastes extend to a bit of a flutter, there are some exciting race meetings taking place throughout the summer months. With 11 of the UK’s most famous racecourses within easy reach including Ascot, Sandown Park, Goodwood and Newbury, why not get a group of like-minded people together and make a day of it?

If culture and history is a more appealing proposition, you can opt for a guided day trip with a specialist company like City & Village tours or Greatdays Travel Group. The planned tours include the coast, the countryside, a city or an historic building or garden and includes guide commentary and plenty of time for stops and refreshments.

So if you are thinking of ways to make the most of the English summer, why not take a look at coach hire? After all, coaches are the safest, most environmentally-friendly, affordable, user-friendly and efficient way to get together with like-minded people to enjoy a fabulous day out.
