Secret Escapes & Southeastern

Hidden Gems

The Partnership

We are giving Secret Escapes members reasons to visit the South East via inspiring content, incredible hotels and easy train travel with Southeastern.


This June we are sending our very own travel experts off to South East of England to uncover hidden gems - places to eat, play and stay across the Southeastern train network. The content they capture, along with all of our 4/5* breaks in this region, will give our members loads of reasons to explore the south-east - and book Secret Escapes hotels, getting there with South Eastern trains.

A bespoke "SOUTHEAST HIDDEN GEMS" collection will host our amazing hotels across the SE network and be fully integrated into the fabric of Secret Escapes - promoted to our members through display, email, social and a spot on our top navigation bar, as well as postcards to promote the campaign beyond Secret Escapes.

Live dates: 25th June - 24th August 2018
