Group Wine Tours

Celebrate a special occasion or a big birthday with friends, family or colleagues on a memorable group day out with Great British Wine Tours.

A group wine tour in Sussex gives you the opportunity to spend time together experiencing the beautiful scenery of English vineyards, learning about local wine production with knowledgeable guides, and tasting high quality wines and locally sourced food.

Our team will organise everything and our friendly hosts will accompany your group ensuring a seamless and memorable day out. Many of our selected partner vineyards offer dedicated spaces and guides for group tours, tastings and dining and both our vintage and modern transport options can accommodate groups of any size.

Scheduled Vintage Wine Bus Tour

Our scheduled Vintage Bus Wine Tours from Brighton depart from the railway station on Saturdays from April – October.  These shared tours are suitable for groups of up to 15 people.  

You’ll be welcomed by our Great British Wine Tours on to the iconic London Red Routemaster bus.  We then transport you in quintessential English style to the first of two Sussex vineyards. 

You’ll explore the first vineyard with a knowledgeable guide before hearing how they produce their wines in the winery.  A tutored wine tasting follows where you can compare notes with one another before heading into the vines for a delicious homemade picnic lunch and a glass of wine.

In the afternoon you’ll visit a second award-winning Sussex vineyard for a tour and tasting before your return journey to Brighton station.

The vintage bus provides a perfect backdrop for all those group photos you’ll want to take to mark the special day.  We’ll ensure you have plenty of time to capture shots on and off the bus and we actively encourage dressing up to make the most of the occasion!

Tailor Made Group Wine Tours

We arrange private group wine tours in Brighton, Sussex, Surrey and Kent.  A private tour for your group is ideal if you want a more personalised tour on a specific day or date from a pick-up point of your choosing to nearby award-winning vineyards.

Our tailor made group wine tours can be arranged for as many people as you wish.  We particularly recommend a private tour if your group is more than 15 people.  If you’re a large group you may wish to consider booking a private vintage bus wine tour to make your day extra special.  Alternatively, we arrange for modern private vehicles to transport you on your wine tour.

Private wine tours are available from a pick-up point that suits you – it could be a mainline railway station, your office, a hotel or a holiday cottage.  We personalise the itinerary for you based on where you are staying, how many vineyards you wish to visit, what sort of meal you would like to include and your budget. 

We work in partnership with multiple vineyards across the region so we will always find just the right ones for your group to enjoy.  We’ll devise and organise a bespoke wine tour for your group so you can simply relax and enjoy the day.
