The Real Ale Trail Experience

10 prizes to be won!

While away a day rediscovering the charm of authentic pubs and unique real ales, without having to worry about who’s driving! Find an ale trail near you…

The Real Ale Trail lets you sample ales from 10 locations in the UK without the worry of driving. This one day festival shuttles participants from towns out to rural locations and back to try local food and drink. 

A bus chauffeurs you all day through spectacular countryside to rural pubs. Every half an hour or so, a bus will appear at each pub on the trail to ferry you to the next pub. You can visit as many or as few pubs as you want and stay at each one for as long as you want. It’s that simple.

We make a beeline for quirky, off the beaten track and hidden pubs – you may well never have heard or visited them before – where real ale and great hospitality is their thing. The real pleasure of the festival comes from exploring pubs and ales you’ve never tried before, without worrying about driving.


The Real Ale Trail is one of the best ways to explore each regions best hostelries offering unique beery riches. The Trails are a big supporter of the village pub and champions small batch breweries (often hidden in villages and these breweries supplying only to a handful of pubs and are happy to not bottle their craft). A lot of ales you sample on the trail are not mass produced and something rather special to the area. 

The boom in microbreweries and the production of independent ales means that there is always something new to experience on every trail. No trail is ever the same apart from the scenery. It wasn’t until people kept commenting about the spectacular countryside you get to enjoy between pubs that we took note. Now we try and keep the route on as many small country lanes without hanging branches, ones that can accommodate a 40ft bus loaded with grown men and women singing their way around the country.
