This summer will be perfect for a road trip in the UK. You can easily set off with a group of friends to a beautiful location, to find new adventures and bask in the sun. But where are the best places to go on your road trip? Read on to find out…
The Cotswolds is a beautiful set of golden villages and rolling hills around the counties of Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. It covers 800 beautiful square kilometres, meaning there are plenty of different places to explore on a road trip too. You can stay in a different village each night before making a day trip to the breathtaking Blenheim Palace, or you could simply enjoy nature and relax with a picnic in a field draped with snowdrops, primroses and daffodils.
Known as the English Riviera, Devon has something for everyone during summer. On a road trip, you’ll be able to visit a wide array of beaches, coastlines and harbours as you travel through. Woolacombe Bay is the perfect stop for a beach trip, while Babbacombe Model Village can keep the whole family entertained on a day out. And if you fancy some exercise, you can trek through stunning coastal trails and walks around the Jurassic Coast.
A Yorkshire road trip can be centred around the sublime North York Moors National Park. This is a lush, green area epitomised by Dalby Forest and the Mallyan Spout waterfall. With all sorts of different walks and bed and breakfasts available, you can enjoy the national park, before darting to the coast for some local fish and chips.
The Lake District is the ideal destination if you fancy cruising through secluded hills while gazing at tranquil, deep blue lakes. Ideally, for a road trip you’ll take on the Coniston Loop via Eskdale and the Duddon Valley: this sublime 42-mile drive can fit into a single day and will allow you to take in all sorts of different views from the Lake District. And by camping for one or two nights, you can really enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.
Once you’ve picked the idyllic location for your road trip, you just need to get the car sorted. And by purchasing a used Audi A3, you can enjoy your surroundings in a comfortable, stylish and reliable vehicle.
