XUK Excel Trips

At XUK Excel we organise one weekly afternoon trip to a local town or city. Our trips are a wonderful opportunity to soak up British culture whilst socialising, sightseeing and shopping!

The trips work on a rotation and are included in the price!


Christened Aquae Sulis in Roman times, Bath was renowned for its spa’s healing properties and huge bath complex, which is well worth a visit even today. Campers will enjoy an historical ramble along cobbled streets to the picturesque Royal Crescent, stunning abbey and banks of the River Avon – oh, and, of course, there’s plenty of independent stores and high street shops!

Not far from Stonehenge, Salisbury is a charming English city with the celebrated medieval cathedral at its heart, housing a rare copy of the Magna Carta. The campers can take in plenty of history as they stroll through the streets, passing Cathedral Close and a range of museums. The city has a strong arts community and the campers will also enjoy one of the regular markets, if they time their visit well!


An unspoilt cathedral city on the edge of the rolling South Downs National Park, Winchester is England's ancient capital and former seat of King Alfred the Great. Today, Winchester combines the best of city life with the freshness of the surrounding countryside


Resting on the banks of the River Anton, the market town of Andover lies at the eastern end of the Salisbury Plain and dates to Saxon times. The narrow lanes and attractive high street are dominated by the town’s 18th century buildings. Once a busy stop-over route for London stagecoaches, we are sure the town’s shops and character will keep the campers busy!


Lying on the banks of the river Avon, Chippenham is a cheerful market town near the Cotswolds Area of Natural Beauty. It has a plethora of shops on and around the bustling High Street in addition to several regular market days. With a number of parks and historical buildings, Chippenham is a wonderful place for campers to experience a typical English town.
