Best Road Trips Around the UK

Many residents of the UK choose to go to the Caribbean on holiday, or Europe for a road trip but there is so much to explore in Britain, especially by car. If you don’t have access to transport or don’t fancy taking your own vehicle, then you could always hire or lease one to see what our homeland has to offer. Here are some of the best places nationwide to take a trip to, no matter what time of year. Dartmoor Devon is a stunningly beautiful part of the world, but there is something extra special about Dartmoor. You can see some great views here and there is loads of charming country pubs to stop by. The area also welcomes campers, so there are plenty of places to pitch or park up if you want. Why not head down to Paignton to visit the beach as well (weather permitting!)? The Cat and Fiddle Named after the inn at its summit, this road is one of the bendiest in Britain. Stretching between Macclesfield and Buxton, the road offers scenic views across Greater Manchester, the Cheshire Plain and the Peak District. It is a fabulous journey to make if you don’t want to stray too far from civilisation! The Lake District This area is very popular for groups who have hired a 4×4 vehicle for a great road trip. You can start at Ambleside and visit the stunning Lake Windemere. From there, you can head in various different directions between Carlisle and Barrow-in-Furness, but a head for heights is a must because some of the more rural roads are a little too close to cliff edges for comfort! Snowdonia Classic Welsh beauty is in abundance here and is a great road trip to make in any car. The renowned mountain Snowdon adds to the views here, and you can always stop to visit the markets in the coastal towns of Wales such as Bangor. Cheddar Gorge You can cruise thorough Cheddar Gorge, a limestone gorge in Somerset. The area is popular all year round, and a lot of people make the road trip here from various spots around the Westcountry. The road comes to an end in the quaint village of Cheddar where there is plenty to see and do. Scottish Highlands Finally, the Scottish Highlands are one of the most beautiful, isolated areas to visit when you’ve rented a car for a road trip. You can start in Edinburgh, and drive to the valley of Glencoe, as well as the impressive Stirling Castle, and end up in Inverness, bear in mind this is a long trip so take supplies!
