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.
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 could even involve your wider social network to share your discoveries, learning's, successes, or groan at your odd cultural faux-pas.
Opening up the world of hard core expeditions (Wakhan Corridor, Madagascar or Kokoda Track, Darien Gap etc.) to people who are looking for a challenge but without some of the hardships. You define your expedition, and we'll bring your definition of comfort or luxury.
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 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.
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.
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.
Biblical Archaeology in Israel
Brown + Hudson was retained to create the research trip for author DJ Niko's last book “The Riddle of Solomon”.
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 are three little words that have become synonymous with effortless style, exotic travel, fitted tuxedos and impeccably tailored machismo.
