With tours running from April, now is the perfect time to plan your 2021 English holiday and adventure. Join us on for a weekend break to cycle, SUP, and kayak the Thames, or take an adventure holiday surfing, coasteering and wild swimming on Cornwall’s dramatic coast. Action packed days in the wilds glide into relaxed evenings around the firepit, sharing stories, with BBQs and our “free beer and wine” fridge to keep the tales flowing.

Our tours are for the active – whether you are looking for self guided cycling tours, a UK walking holiday or a multi-activity extravaganza, Active England will take the hassle out getting outdoors. You’ll have plenty of time to sit back relax and enjoy the ride, finishing our days in some of the best pubs known to man chatting in beer gardens and watching the sunset over another glorious day.

All our trips start a direct train ride from central London, accessible from across the country, so you can see the best parts of the Lake District, Cornwall and the Cotswolds without a car.
