Put the top down and turn the radio up for the road trip of a lifetime as acclaimed British actor Robbie Coltrane (Rubeus Hagrid, Harry Potter) sets off on an epic quest to discover the true essence of Britain.

Premiering Sun., June 15 at 8 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT on OLN, Robbie Coltrane’s Incredible Britain is a charming three-part series that follows the actor as he travels the length of his homeland in a classic 1950’s convertible, shunning busy motorways in favour of winding B-roads.

Getting off the hard shoulder and disposing of the satellite navigation system, Coltrane aims to uncover the exotic natural features, unique characters and intriguing customs that make Britain what it is today.

With a nose for adventure and armed with his inimitable wit, join the actor on a meandering expedition that takes him from London to Glasgow.

Wilfully driving as far off the beaten track as possible, this series uncovers the places that define Britain and the people that make the nation so unique.
