What Is Your Best Drive In The UK?

Best driving roads around the UK

For many of us, the day to day driving on the congested roads of the UK’s towns and cities is not something we enjoy. However, there are still places around the country where you can forget the drudgery of a Monday morning commute and can still actually enjoy the driving experience.

From the South West to the North East of Britain you can find some beautiful driving roads which wind through spectacular, rugged landscapes. Whether it’s lakes and mountains or cliffs and coasts, the UK still has hidden spots just waiting for you to discover

Along with four other leading travel influencers we were asked by LeaseCar to recommend one of our favourite drives in the UK. Being Welsh, we had to pick somewhere in Wales, no bias, ‘honestly’. There were quite a few to choose from but our particular favourite was the route from the market town of Brecon through the heart of Mid Wales to the picturesque Devil’s Bridge.

  1. The Cotswolds – The towns and villages are quintessentially English and if you are a visitor to the UK, the area is exactly how you imagine English country life to be like.
  2. Brecon To Devil’s Bride – As mentioned, that’s our choice. This route is also popular with bikers.
  3. Devon To Newquay – Living on the coast ourselves we appreciate the love of this drive. We love the rugged North Devon Coast and the villages of Cornwall. This coastline is also a mecca for surfers as well as lovers of cream teas.
  4. London To Dorset – A great way to escape the city and get the South Coast of England. It’s known for the Jurassic Coast, a long stretch of coast where the cliffs contain many fossils.
  5. The Lake District – We visited this area for the first time last Autumn and we have to agree it is breathtaking. The area is a National Park and it is clear to see why the scenery has inspired writers, poets and painters over the centuries.
