The UK’s Best Road Trips *

When it comes to road trips, you don’t have to go to into mainland Europe or into America as we have so many great options here in the UK. I’d love to take our drone and fly it behind our car whilst going through incredible landscapes and making the most of our stunning country. I’ve been looking into my three favourite routes that could be added to our list of holiday’s next year and thought I’d share them with you as they are beyond words!

Black Mountain Pass, Wales

This a pretty short road trip as the pass itself can be done within a day but as it’s within the Brecon Beacons there’s plenty to see there that can extend your stay for a little longer. The pass rolls between Llandovery in the north, crossing the dragon’s humps of Pont Aber and Herbert’s Pass past beyond word viewpoints, before heading down into the cascading village of Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen. This one is top of my list as it’s been used many times on Top Gear and I used to be a huge fan of the show!

North Coast 500, Scotland

I don’t think any UK road trip list would be complete without the North Coast 500! This route is a circular icon, stretching across 500 miles of single-track driving. You take a route along the coast from Inverness and the Black Isle, past the rugged rock faces of Caithness, Sutherland and Wester Ross. It also offers historical ruins, quirky terrain, stunning castles, shingle-sand beaches, tiny fishing areas and peaty whisky distilleries – that you may just have to stop off at. A little warning though; as this route is taking you through some incredible areas of Scotland the places to stay are hard to come across so you need to plan ahead and book well in advance!

 Atlantic Highway, England

This route of just over 170miles should take you around 5 days, and over those days you’ll be taking in the sights between barley fields and bays and beach breaks. The A39 from Bridgewater to Bude is a zigzag route that weaves along the Devon and Cornish coast. Beyond the roads, the wind filled dunes become the territory of surfer dudes as the waves are perfect for that here. Make sure you stop off at Exmoor National Park for hikes across the rolling landscape, before driving south from Barnstaple through the seaside town of Bude which is perfect for surfing, then into Padstow for incredible seafood (try one of Rick Stein’s many restaurants) and try to make your route hit Newquay for the weekend parties. Then it’s onwards to Land’s End – a great photo opportunity as it was once thought to be the end of the world!

If you’re a little braver than what we are and decide to take on these routes on a motorbike then please make sure you have all of the Kawasaki motorcycle parts and  Yamaha Accessories you need for a safe trip. If you want to take a bike with you then check out Bike Discounts UK.
