Top 5 road trip locations for this summer
Summer is here, and nothing says ‘summer’ like a nice, long road trip. Whether riding with friends, and family or enjoying your own company, a nice drive whilst the sun is beaming is one of the best things about summer.
It’s set to be one of the hottest summers on record, so it’s important you make the most of it. Here are five locations that you should consider for a summer road trip in the UK;
- North York Moors National Park (Helmsley to Whitby)
The North York Moors has the world’s largest collection of heather moorland, which is a rough, windswept type of landscape that has a timeless quality to it. In summer, you will find wide-open spaces filled with wildflowers. This 50-mile route is full of interesting sights and photogenic landscapes.
- Scottish North Coast, Scotland
The Scottish North Coast trip comprises 6 distinctive encounters, all equally incredible viewing. You might also see dolphins off Black Isle, where the local food and craft beer scene are worth a stop, too. Plenty to do, plenty to see.
- Cheddar Gorge, Somerset
The award-winning Cheddar Gorge drive twists and turns its way for 14 cliffhanging miles. It’s easy to reach from popular tourist spots in the southwest, like Bath, Bristol, and Weston-Super-Mare. This is perfect for the summer.
- Snake Pass, Peak District
Snake Pass is a famous route in Derbyshire that cuts through the Pennines, past several small villages, with Ladybower Reservoir as a halfway point. Stop here to enjoy the panorama from the Bamford Edge viewpoint. As you head north towards Manchester, you’ll be treated to stunning views as you drive into Glossop town.
- Land of the Lakes, Lake District
The Coniston Loop is a 42-mile-long drive that takes you through some rarely seen parts of the Lake District. It's an excellent way to see many different parts of the area in a day. Stopping frequently, you’ll visit Duddon Valley, an area so famed for beauty. The Lake District remains one of the most popular places for sightseeing in the UK.Ensure your car is ready for the summer with Eurofit Autocentres, use code AIR10 for 10% off your air-con service, book now using our website eurofitautocentres.co.uk or visit your local centre.
