The Best UK Road Trips

A guide to some of the best UK road trips

With summer almost here and restrictions easing it could be a great time to start planning your next adventure in the UK. Here are four road trips the team love here at Inchcape. 


Preparing For The Perfect Road Trip


Whilst you can use almost any car for a road trip, it may be even more enjoyable in a convertible, sports car or hot hatchback. These all tend to offer a nice soundtrack from the exhaust, or open top thrills which add to the drama and fun of the great British scenery.

If you plan to take your current car on a longer trip away from home, it is worthwhile booking a quick check up to ensure you car is roadworthy and safe. To reduce the risk of breaking down, contact Inchcape to arrange a quick vehicle check-up

North Coast 500


Perhaps the most famous trip in the UK, the NC500 is often claimed to be the UK’s own Route 66. 

The NC500 was launched in 2015 and it combines many different roads over incredible Scottish scenery in a 516 mile road trip. It begins at Inverness Castle and visits counties such as Inverness-Shire, Sutherland, Caithness and Ross and Cromarty. It presents all of the highlights of the Highlands, visiting famous attractions and offering constant views of beautiful lochs, mountains and sea stacks. 

It is recommended to drive the NC500 over at least five days to ensure you have time to fully explore the area. 
 


Evo Triangle


The Evo Triangle is situated in North Wales and is formed from 20 miles of the A5, A543 and B4501. The shape of the roads creates a triangle shape when viewed on a map. 

The Evo Triangle features low levels of traffic, cambered bends and dramatic scenery. The roads are testing at any speed and truly satisfy the urge for a good drive.
 
North Wales has lots of places to visit and places to stay which can be enjoyed and combined with your drive of the Evo Triangle.

Cheddar Gorge


Cheddar Gorge in Somerset is not only famous for one particular and popular type of cheese, but also its caves, scenery, walks and winding road. Cheddar Gorge is England’s deepest gorge and is one of the most impressive natural landmarks in the UK.

The drive starts in Green Ore, following the B3135 all the way to Cheddar. This route includes some open country driving over the Mendip Hills, getting tighter and more challenging as you enter Cheddar Gorge. The road then winds straight down the middle of the Gorge with incredible views. Here you can stop to further take in the scenery, buy some of the local cheese or stop for a coffee. 
 


Cat and Fiddle


The final drive in our top 4 UK road trips is named the Cat and Fiddle. This is a 12 mile road trip located in the Peak District, one of the most popular national parks. The route starts in Buxton and goes through Derbyshire, Macclesfield and Cheshire. 

Although named one of the most dangerous roads in Britain it has since been made safer with the introduction of average speed checks. But at slower speeds, the sharp bends, steep drops and stunning scenery all add to a jaw dropping experience. At its peak is a pub that the route is named after.
