The United Kingdom, contrary to the common belief that’s being held in mainland Europe, is a truly beautiful and scenic country. From the Atlantic south shores in Devon and Cornwall to the majestic hills of Wales and the breathtaking highlands of Scotland, the country is full of driving routes that rival the ones on the opposite side of the pond.
Here are ten of the UK’s most picturesque roads.
By driving through the roads that follow the Norfolk coastline, you can witness some of the country’s most remarkable sights.
Starting from King’s Lynn going all the way to Lowestoft, with a great sea view on your left side, it should take around 4 days to complete.
Within these 4 days, you should make some stops within the Norfolk Coast Area of outstanding beauty and observe nature at its best. You could optionally make some stops in the small seaside towns of Hunstanton, Cromer, and Blakeney.
The Yorkshire Dales
In the historic county of Yorkshire, you get the chance to drive around and explore the stunning scenery of the Dales.
The landscape comprises of river valleys and steep hills, which give you the opportunity to hike if you would like to or to survey the extensive cave systems in the area.
A 3-day tour would be more than enough to enjoy the lush wild flora, try out local products and take a peek at the amazing waterfalls the county has to offer.
The favourite weekend getaway of the Londoners, as it is situated just two hours and a half northwest of London, it is England’s most graphic area.
A convenient route stitches all the villages together where you can start your adventure at Castle Combe in Wiltshire before heading to Bibury with its beautiful stone-built houses and the colourful gardens that accompany them.
A weekend sounds about the right amount of time to spend to fully appreciate the charm of the village complex.
This astonishing route passes through Devon and Cornwall. The expectations given by its brand name are fulfilled to the maximum with the phenomenal views you get.
You drive through the better part of England’s Atlantic coastline and pass through some captivating little towns such as Newquay, Boscastle, and Padstow. While you’re at it you can receive some surfing lessons and some fine locally sourced seafood.
The Cornish charm is real and you would need again, at least a week to appreciate it.
North Coast 500
Situated in the northernmost part of the country, it is best to drive through it during the winter to get the full experience, cosying up in pubs and inns, next to burning logs.
This route stretches for 500 miles through the wilderness of Scotland, with the first milestone being the famous Loch Ness. The lake delivers to you an eerie feeling and alongside the ambient noises of nature, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Continuing further north, Ullapool should 100% be on your journey’s bucket list. It resembles what an authentic Scottish village would look like on the northern coast.
You would need at the very least a week to get the full benefits of this soul-cleansing trip. Enjoy every moment of the trip and I don’t mean it in a cliché way.
