See and Do


Sip and sample your way through England's vineyards. Stroll through acres of vines, tour the wineries and taste your way through some of England's finest wines, all within the setting of glorious rolling countryside and welcoming tasting rooms.

While the thought of an English wine was once considered laughable, the English wine industry has come along way in the last ten or twenty years. Don't believe us? Take a tour of some of these award-winning vineyards and discover wines that have been compared to those of Champagne. 

For the true wine connoisseur, why not make a proper break of it and tour three or four? As each vineyard and wine maker has their own unique style, skills and even soil, you'll be able to taste from a whole range of delectable wines.  

With south facing slopes, lower than average rainfall and the perfect soil, Essex has been cited as a prime wine growing region.

Home to some of England's best-loved vineyards, the accolades for Kent's wines just keep on coming. Some have even graced the weddings of royalty.

The Peak District & Derbyshire's Renishaw Hall Vineyard has been growing grapes for more than 40 years.
