Next Episode of Susan Calman's Grand Day Out is
Susan Calman hits the road in a vintage campervan to discover some of Britain's most scenically stunning road trips. Taking in the Lake District, Devon and Cornwall, Wales, Yorkshire, the Cotswolds and her native Scotland, Susan explores the breathtakingly beautiful, quintessentially British places and meet some amazing characters along the way.
The comedian's second run of excursions begins on the Norfolk Broads, where she is invited aboard a beautifully restored boat known as a wherry. Moving onto Cromer, Susan has come for the famous crab, but also discovers the local jig dolls. Part puppet, part percussion instrument, it leads to a very happy time in a pub.
The comedian and presenter explores Cornwall's coast, taking in the delights from Charlestown to Land's End, and beyond. She is invited to scale the masts of a schooner at the UK's last working Georgian port and is asked to help tend the country's only outdoor jungle. On the other side of a ferry trip, Susan discovers the surprising sight of Europe's largest tea plantation, right here in Britain.
The comedian climbs the dramatic and spectacular peaks of north Wales. She she stops off at the must-see tourist spot of the Tu Hwnt Ir Bont Tearoom, said to be the most photographed in Wales and famed for its Welsh rarebit. Moving on to Mount Snowdon, Susan climbs the magnificent peak in style, using the mountain railway.
The comedian visits Shakespeare Country, and stops off at the impressive Warwick Castle. There she is invited to try the ancient art of archery and, to her surprise, discovers she's a natural. Susan also enjoys a pedalo trip on the River Avon before she and campervan Helen travel to Stratford-upon-Avon, the spot synonymous with playwright and poet William Shakespeare.
Susan discovers some of the most beautiful parts of Northern Ireland's coastline, beginning in Belfast and heading to the Antrim coast, before moving inland to Lough Neagh. Along the way she meets a number of local characters, including some passionate spade makers who have turned the humble spade into an art form, and visits a place that is responsible for attracting 350,000 Game of Thrones enthusiasts to the region's shores every year.
Susan heads for the West Country, and travels from Bath to the village of Cheddar, before meandering through the medieval city of Wells and ending her road trip in Weston-super-Mare. Along the way she meets a Jane Austen aficionado who is happy to provide some fitting period costume and all the gossip behind that era, takes in the astonishing 400-foot-high cliffs of the Cheddar Gorge and is challenged to a game of skittles.
The presenter explores Kent, and investigates the curiously named Leeds Castle. She also takes a look round Chatham and its historic dockyard, which, as it turns out, is home to not only the world's only working Victorian Ropery, but also Britain's only female master rope maker. Susan concludes her trip at one of the most iconic and recognisable views of Britain - the White Cliffs of Dover.
