19 Have a Mini adventure in the Surrey Hills

It was the car that defined Britain's Swinging Sixties, and a classic 1965 Mini can be yours for 48 hours when you book Indytute's country-weekend adventure (£229;indytute.com;). The cars have been refurbed to include Bluetooth connectivity so plan to load your phone with the Kinks, the Rolling Stones and other music that evokes the era. Opt for a curated route through the Surrey Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that once inspired Jane Austen, or go off-piste, choosing your own country lanes. Recommended pit stops include Box Hill, a wooded summit with green and pleasant views for miles; Shere, an archetypal English village with timber-framed cottages, a Norman church, two pubs and a tearoom; and Denbies, Britain's largest wine estate, where you can overnight in a farmhouse B&B (from £69;;).
