Here’s everything we know about Craig And Bruno's Great British Road Trips so far! 

Craig And Bruno's Great British Road Trips release date 

Craig And Bruno's Great British Road Trips launches on ITV on Wednesday July 14 at 8pm, and will run for six weeks.

How many episodes of Craig And Bruno's Great British Road Trips are there? 

Bruno and Craig’s Great British Road Trip is a six-part series, and each episode is thirty minutes long!

What’s the premise? 

Craig is from Australia and Bruno comes from Italy and both have been living in the UK for some time now. However, their demanding schedules have meant they haven’t been able to do much exploring of the British countryside as of yet.

Craig And Bruno's Great British Road Trips gives them the perfect opportunity to do exactly that! They’ll be taking on six of the most beautiful drives in Britain, including trips to the Cotswolds, the Scottish Highlands, the mountains of Snowdonia, the Cornish coast, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District!

Along the way, Bruno and Craig will be immersing themselves in local British culture and history. They’ll be seeing breathtaking scenery, going off on little adventures, listening to fascinating stories and eating amazing food.

"It's surprising because previously we have gone from city to city but never actually gone off the beaten track," says Bruno. "These drives really take you to places that you otherwise wouldn't see. Each region has its own particular, very different, quality, and it's so unexpected. Like the coastline in Cornwall, the [Minack] theatre that has been blasted out of rocks; Wales, which is wild and has almost like a magical quality; and the Dales, which are so beautiful. Each place is almost like a micro-world — all very, very different, and so unspoiled."

You might not expect Bruno and Craig to be motoring enthusiasts, but you’d be wrong! Craig has restored his own classic car and Bruno still remembers seeing a Ferrari for the first time in a body shop his father worked in.
