As part of its ever-expanding Special Operations division, Jaguar Land Rover Classic is now offering the public the chance to drive some of its most historic vehicles, both old and new, as part of a new experience day at Eastnor Castle.

Land Rover has a long history with the Herefordshire site, as many of the tracks that cross the estate have been used by the company to develop its four-wheel-drive systems through the decades. Now open for public experience, the day gives customers the unique opportunity to use either classic or modern Jaguar Land Rover vehicles on some of the 60 tracks that are spread across the 5000-acre estate.

It will come as no surprise that the old Jaguars won’t be able to take the off-road paths, but they can be driven on the roads surrounding the castle in the very picturesque Malvern Hills. 

Yours truly sampled Eastnor Castle's grounds in some of the cars on offer. Below, I count down my top five worth trying at the drive experience.
