Big Thinking

No two Brown + Hudson travel experiences are alike, because each client and every brief is unique. We handcraft each journey meticulously starting from scratch. 

The following ideas are a starting point; an expression of a more considered approach to original, meaningful and insightful bespoke travel.

  • A Journey around my room

    For people who struggle to achieve a work/life balance, this concept provides all the benefits of travel without any of the inconveniences. Our understanding of how a journey satisfies one’s most profound needs allows us to recreate intensely memorable cultural experiences anywhere. Imagine Vietnam in London, India in Toronto, Morocco in Paris, Bhutan in Buenos Aires.

  • Esoterica

    Secrets known only to an initiated minority. We’ve long prioritised the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of travel and now we ask you to consider the ‘what’. What if you have a specialist, quirky or niche interest? Organ music in Germany, the lighting of Paris’ architecture, British comedy, reflexology in Singapore or even the global life-cycle of oil? You tell us what you’re into and we’ll apply our investigative, analytical and research skills to create a journey of discovery that will give you an unparalleled level of insight into your personal passion.

  • Journey with no destination

    That's right. We won't tell you where you're going. We shift the emphasis from the “where” of travel to “why” and "how". You can focus on other things. Yourself for example. Or the outcome you have for your trip. Maybe increased mindfulness, grace or something else. We begin with an interview, then carefully select pre-departure meetings, and in-country visits and activities to deliver your outcome. You'll discover your destination when you get there.

  • The Great Game

    Imagine the latest high-tech travel board game created just for you. A modern day cultural treasure hunt centred on your destination. Perfect to bring a multi-generational family together whilst travelling. We'll geo-cache clues, create challenges, pop-up events, involve locals and actors too. Using a dedicated app you can involve your wider social network to share and thunder clap your discoveries, learning, successes or groan at your odd cultural faux-pas.

  • Travel Cinemascope

    Each travel experience is a legacy to be passed on from generation to generation and our concept Travel Cinemascope preserves it perfectly. Become the stars of your own journey. How you and your family were in that place, at that time, discretely and seamlessly captured on film. Whether as an understated travelogue, a journalistic documentary or a reality show, we assemble the perfect team to help you capture it.

  • Travel as therapy

    We travel because we lack something at home. Sun, the exotic, a sense of otherness, anonymity or just time to think. Our unique process helps you explore this. You may be well-travelled, but have you ever travelled for therapy? Consider Tokyo for calm, Monument Valley for perspective. The act of travel is ages old but the new art of travel is to think differently about the real benefits travel can bring. Thought in travel? Now there’s a thought.

  • The Lives of Others

    For a richer more insightful experience, do everything except visit tourist sites. We'll invite you to a dinner party, introduce you to a local journalist or trendsetter, show you which neighbourhood coffee shop to hang out in and more. Everything except the obvious. Forget the guide book, pass on museums, dispense with the local guide. We have other ideas that will show you a place from a refreshingly different and human perspective.

  • The Grand Tour 2.0

    Inspired by the 17th century original, our Grand Tour 2.0 is a contemporary journey that explores global culture, issues and trends. From India to China, Brazil to Russia, focusing on your interests, meet the people shaping the future of media, technology, politics, the arts, conservation and social change. From CEOs to NGOs the result is an experience that allows you to carve your place in an increasingly connected world.

  • Something’s Afoot in Singapore

    How to keep a spa and wellness aficionado entertained when footloose and fancy-free through South East Asia? Simple – remove his shoes and introduce him to a man called Doctor Fish.

  • European Fashion Odyssey

    If someone published The World Atlas of Style, there would be stars flagging New York and Tokyo, of course, along with slightly smaller ones for up-and-comers like Sydney and São Paulo. Still, a flip of the pages would quickly reinforce what’s been true for the past century: Europe is the epicentre of world fashion.

  • Globe-Trotter Journeys

    Two exclusive trips crafted especially for luxury luggage company Globe-Trotter; the journeys are inspired by their Jet and Propellor collection.

  • Biblical Archaeology in Israel

    Brown + Hudson was retained to create the research trip for author DJ Niko's last book “The Riddle of Solomon”.

  • A Quick Getaway for Jeremy Clarkson

    Some places that Jeremy Clarkson might like to escape to contemplate his latest 'fracas'. Did someone mention the Amazon?

  • Gift of Travel

    Some have called this the best internship ever. What better gift than an guided introduction to the world of luxury travel.

  • Living the Bond Life

    Living the Bond life. For those who take their travel shaken, not stirred They’re three little words that have become synonymous with effortless style, exotic travel, fitted tuxedos and impeccably tailored machismo.

  • Spanish Banquet

    Three couples decided to explore Spain together. While they all enjoyed good food, wine and luxurious accommodation, their interests otherwise were rather diverse. We built on this complexity, curating a rich and passionate story, much like Spain itself.

  • Mediterranean Odyssey

    An expansive journey created for a group of 3 who wanted to visit Turkey and Italy, getting to know the rich historical, cultural and gastronomic heritages of these beautiful countries. Oh, and indulge in the odd bit of fishing along the way.

  • Sand, Sun and Skeletons

    Some of Africa’s most dramatic landscapes provide the backdrop to this wonderful and strangely romantic discovery of Namibia and Botswana.

  • East African Extravaganza

    East Africa’s natural wonders are explored aboard a helicopter and at the side of a legendary wildlife film-maker, who will shoot and produce a professional documentary of the adventure as a unique memento to take home.

  • Blessed by Legends

    What do you get if you put a shark expert, Archbishop Tutu, Sir Elton John, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in a room together?

  • Friends in High Places

    How a strange curiosity for Himalayan Kingdom Culture led to tea and biscuits with the King of Ladakh.
