My UK Tour normally offers luxury holidays around locations like the Lake District or the Cotswolds, but it is now offering trips themed around Sir Tim Martin’s budget boozers.

Two tours are offered – one in the South of England over seven days, and one in the North that takes place across six.

The southern tour begins in Hackney, London with a trip to The Rochester Castle, which is the oldest-surviving Wetherspoons, before then taking in some of the sights of the city including the Tower of London.

As the trip progresses, the itinerary will take guests to East Anglia and Bury St. Edmunds (and a visit to the grand The Corn Exchange Wetherspoons), then down to Rochester in Kent, home to the Spoons with Martin’s favourite carpet (and a Wetherspoons hotel), followed by a visit to The Golden Lion, and Ramsgate’s The Royal Victoria Pavillion, which is the biggest pub in the chain.

Later in the trip, guests will head out west, heading to Exeter for some cultural immersion at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and a visit to George’s Meeting House, Martin’s local. The South of England tour then concludes in Cornwall. Overall, the Southern England tour takes in eight pubs.

As for the northern tour, that commences in Keswick and concludes in Newcastle, taking in more historical sites as well as six landmark Wetherspoons pubs, including Blackpool’s Velvet Coaster, which is claimed to be the “nicest” Wetherspoons in the country, and the Sir Wiliam de Wessyngton in Sunderland, cited as the cheapest Spoons in the North.

Prices start from £1,300 per person, with a personalised guide and a Bentley for transportation

“All of us at MyUKTour are so excited to start offering this bespoke trip to one of Britain’s best known, and arguably finest, cultural institutions,” said a spokesperson for the travel company. “Combining hearty pub grub and craft ales with historical monuments and stunning landscapes, this tour is sure to showcase the very best that Britain has to offer.”

While many Brits have a huge affection for Wetherspoons, some have a more damning view, as social media recently revealed.
