There is nothing quite like the excitement of planning and enjoying a road trip. The only problem is that of deciding where you should go. So where are the best places to have a Spring road trip in the UK? Well, below we share with you the top 5 road trips that you should be enjoying this Spring!
There is nothing quite like driving through the narrow lanes of the Yorkshire Dales, once home to the War of the Roses. Here you will drive through quaint little villages, past majestic waterfalls and rolling hills. Drive along the Buttertubs Pass, and visit the interesting visitor centre at Hawes, which is also famously known as Wallace and Gromit country.
Many people often forget how picturesque East Anglia is, and the flat roads and open vast spaces, make it perfect for a Spring road trip. Starting your road trip in Dedham is a great idea, as here you can visit the hidden restaurant, Le Talbooth, before driving to Ramsholt and the B1084 that will make you wind your way towards idyllic Orford. While in the area you also need to drive to Aldeburgh, located along the Suffolk Heritage Coast, where you can enjoy the many pebbled beaches.
The Lake District is always a popular holiday destination, but it is also perfect for a road trip due to its stunning scenery, no matter what the weather! You can challenge your driving skills while winding your way through the steep Kirkstone Pass, that is fondly referred to as The Struggle by the locals. One there you can then travel onwards and enjoy beautiful Ambleside, located along iconic Lake Windermere. From here you can drive to Windermere and further along to Conniston, and if you so wish, take time out for some sailing.
This beautiful location is only a 10-mile drive from Bristol, so if you wish to embark upon a Spring road trip that is close to home, and not too long, then the Cheddar Gorge is a fantastic destination. As you drive you will see impressive and looming limestone cliffs, that seem to erupt from nowhere. The road is twisted that helps to add to the air of excitement while you drive!
No Spring road trip would be complete without a trip to Scotland and its lush landscape of Loch Lomond in the Highlands of Scotland. Here you can amble along wide open roads while you take in the iconic mountain ranges and impressive lochs. As you drive you will be able to see Ben Nevis, and the landscape of Stifling and Crieff. When in the Highlands, you also need to visit Oban and Inveraray.
