Are you planning a road trip to the UK? If you have been to different places on tours and not have tried cross-country driving, you are missing a lot. It is not too late to go on a holiday during the summer and drive for miles with your loved ones or mates. Here are some of the destinations you can explore:

  1. Dartmoor

What’s lovely about going to this road trip destination is the myriad of activities you can enjoy. Apart from the scenic views, there are numerous pubs to go to. For more adventure, you can spend a night camping out in your van near the beach. Sleep under the stars as the waves lull you to sleep.


  1. Penrith to Haydon

Chosen as the best driving road int the UK, the A686 to Penrith to Haydon is another awesome choice. Best route to take during summer and just underneath Northumberland National Park, taking this route leads you to quiet and laid back towns, bridges and astonishing views.

  1. Cheddar Gorge


This is the go-to destination for you if you fancy visiting the Westcountry but are not into travelling into the styx and cruising through this limestone gorge. Located in Somerset, this is also the home of the Cheddar caves where the oldest human skeleton named, Cheddar Man, was discovered in 1903. It was said to be around 9,000 years old.

  1. Woodhead Pass


If you are heading to South Yorkshire from Greater Manchester, you need to take A628 road and passing the Pennine chain of hills through the Peak District National Park and by way of Woodhead Pass. There are self-catering holiday cottages you can spend a night in.

  1. Cat and Fiddle Road


Drive in one of the roads in the UK with lots of bends and sharp corners, the stretch of A537 road which connects Buxton and Macclesfield and visit the Cat and Fiddle Inn, the second highest inn located in all of England. Just be extra careful while driving since the road can be dangerous.
