Long Weekends

2014 marks launch of the all new Aston Martin Long Weekends in the UK. If you want the atmosphere and luxury of an On Tour event but cannot attend a week away, why not join us on one of our shorter breaks?

From Friday through to Sunday, you and a guest will join us at one of the UK’s top hotels for a weekend of gourmet food, exclusive outdoor and indoor activities and of course – driving your Aston Martin! Each weekend is different, with events to suit all tastes during the course of the three days. Our locations for this year are Chewton Glen in Hampshire, Gleneagles in Scotland and Lucknam Park in Wiltshire.
