Road Trips in Great Britain | Quirkiest Spots You Haven't Thought About

A crazy ride can bring an exciting rush of adrenaline. If you can get behind the wheel, there's no reason not to enjoy this funfair-like thrill. The good news is that the UK has some of the coolest landscapes, perfect for road trips. Before setting off, make sure your car is in tip-top condition, ready to go.

The Best Road Trips in the UK

If you are prepped and ready to hit the open road, activate your adventurous side. You are about to see spectacular beauty and staggering contrasts across the UK. Going to a celebration? Top it off with a laid-back drive around the countryside to visit places that are way out of the ordinary.

  • Yorkshire Moors and Dales

    The roads criss-crossing moor and dale regions were once a setting for the War of the Roses in the medieval age. Now they make a daisy-chain that links the finest villages and waterfalls of northern England. The route leading to Swaledale from Wensleydale takes twists and turns that form a snake-like backdrop. For a lazy summer ramble, set off on the A59 starting from Harrogate to Grassington and head towards the impressive Aysgarth Falls.

  • Cotswolds

    Well-preserved villages are dotted around the Cotswolds in between winding lanes that have been marked with stone walls. Begin your car journey in Chipping Campden and go from one village to another. Look out for medieval churches and local curiosities as you approach Bath. The Cotswolds hosts beer and cider festivals so you might want to check the calendar beforehand, remember don't drink and drive.

  • Cornwall

    Perched in the southwestern part of Great Britain, Cornwall is the UK's leg as well as a truly idyllic destination for self-drive road trips. Drop into the small seaside towns and quaint villages or walk along coastal trails around Cornwall.

  • Northern Ireland

    There's nothing quite like a road trip in Northern Ireland. It's a 121 mile route on the fist-shaped coastal region from Belfast to Londonderry. Take a break on the North of Belfast walkway that curls through caves, steep hills and passes over bridges. On your Northern Ireland road trip head for the Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle or Carrick-aRede Rope Bridge, mind-blowing.
