Get Off the Beaten Track in the UK

Getting off the beaten track with Not In The Guidebooks isn’t all about flying to far-off places and exotic corners of the world.

Sometimes, it’s about discovering what lies virtually on our own doorstep in a completely different way or seeking out a quiet, unknown corner of the country for a secluded escape from urban life.

Whether it’s coasteering on the cliffs of Cornwall, taking incredible train journeys around the Scottish Highlands, foraging for food in Pembrokeshire, or hiking throught the rolling Cotswold hills, there’s something for everyone with our selection of unique, local day trips, mini breaks and longer experiences in the UK.
