The Last Overland

The 'Oxford & Cambridge Far Eastern Expedition' - The First Overland - made history in 1955 by being the first to drive from London to Singapore. That young team inspired generations of adventurers through their extraordinary endeavour, showing many remote corners of the world on film for the first time. 

Driving the original 1955 Land Rover (‘Oxford’), Grammar’s Alex Bescoby will join one of the original team, Tim Slessor, to remake history for a new generation of adventurers. This time, Alex and Tim will forge the path through some of the densest jungles, highest mountains and most arid deserts on the planet, returning the car from Singapore to London.

The Last Overland Expedition embarks from Singapore on August 25th 2019. Find out more at, and follow the adventure live on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube.
