The UK is the perfect place to do a road trip. If you’re looking for a nice drive, here are some of the best:


If you drive through the Cotswold, you’ll cross through towns like Bourbon-on-the-Water, and Stow-on-the-Wold. The country roads are long and winding, with farmland, small towns, and lots of places to stop for fish and chips.

Devon to Newquay

If you want to get out of the city, this is where you’ll find one of the best and most beautiful drives in the UK. The whole drive is around 150 miles long, making it a good option if you’d like to break your road trip up over a few days. You’ll pass some of the UK’s most stunning coastlines, and it’s usually a nice peaceful drive.


London to Dorset

Another one for people hoping to get out of the city- a drive to Dorset takes just two hours from London, and you’ll get to enjoy marine parks and beaches along the way. There are two choices for your route, and for the most scenic route, be sure to take the A303 and A352.

Lake District

Simply the name ‘Lake District’ conquers up pictures in your mind of what this drive could be like, but none of them compare to the reality. As you begin to approach the Lake District, you’ll only see large hills and trees for a while, until a mountain pops out, and all of a sudden you’re surrounded by lakes and hills. Not only are these winding roads a fun drive, but you’ll be able to constantly stop and enjoy the picturesque beauty.

Brecon to Devil’s Bridge

This drive starts in Cardiff, where you’ll jump on the A470. Here, you’ll head into the heart of the Welsh valleys. You’ll start within industrial landscape, which will then move into the rugged, wild Brecon Beacons, where you can stop and enjoy some incredible views. If you’re lucky, you’ll see birds of prey, like the Red Kite.
