There are few things as beautiful as the British countryside, and My Voucher Codes recently revealed some of the most popular routes for your next road trip through the British countryside.
Here are some of the best:
Snake Pass & Cat and the Fiddle
This is one of the most famous drives in the UK, and you’ll head along the A57 Snake Pass road from Sheffield, before driving down the Cat and Fiddle road or A537. This will take you through the beautiful Peak District National Park which covers Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Cheshire.
This is an easy drive and will take you around an hour and a half if you don’t stop, but stopping is enough so you can see some of the sites, which include Ladybower Reservoir, Treak Cliff Cavern, and the Chestnut Centre Otter, Owl and Wildlife Park.
While the road through this gorge is impressive, the entire route includes the B3135 which is jam-packed with sweeping bends and hairpin turns (along with gorgeous woodland and deep cut lime gorges). Located just 10 miles from Bristol, if you want a nice day trip with the family, this is the perfect route.
Go for a bike ride on the Strawberry Line Path, see the Cheddar Caves, or even play some golf at Cheddar Crazy Golf.
Invergarry to Skye Highland, Scotland
This route has you travelling along the A87, through the breathtaking Scottish Highlands. This is considered to be one of the best routes in the United Kingdom, and if you drive the whole thing without stopping it will only take you around two hours to drive.
You’ll have to stop, of course, since there are incredible views waiting around every corner, so take your camera and stop at the 5 lochs- Alsh, Garry, Duich, Loyne and Cluanie. There are plenty of nature walks and trails, and you can also stop at Eilean Donan Castle to see views of the mountains and learn about the region’s history.
The Glens of Antrim, North Ireland
If you’re only in the area for a few days, there are many attractions you should see on the A8 on thew ay from Londonderry. If you’ve got the family with you, consider Carnfunnock Country Park, where there is a range of activities, events and attractions (many of them free), and you can also camp on site.
Ballycastle makes a great stop, and the fishing harbour has a bunch of cycling routes through the area, and the famous Giant’s Causeway is a UNESCO World Heritage site and popular on Instagram.
