There is no better way to explore the space you live in or are travelling to than with a road trip. Whether you’re just visiting for a short period or you’ve got all the time in the world, don’t miss the chance to hop into a car and see the real world entirely at your own pace. This is the main attraction of the road trip – they offer complete freedom over your adventure!
You can choose to go on a simple day trip or embark on a whole weekend away, the choice is yours. Either way, it’s important to care properly for your car since it’s your primary form of transport. Before starting your journey, ensure you’ve got the right tyres for your trip and complete key maintenance checks with your air con and interior to keep you comfortable on your travels.
Here are the best four road trips to go on in England:
Cornwall boasts some of the best beaches in the UK, with gems like Porthcurno pulling in thousands of visitors a year. You can see what this county has to offer comfortably by car in one to two weeks! Not only can you take advantage of the golden beaches and surfing opportunities but you can join a Mine tour, go on a moor walk, and learn about Cornwall’s uniqueness as a county of England.
North Devon rivals Cornwall with its gorgeous coastline and popular tourist attractions. You can choose to camp in the quiet hillside of Watermouth, explore the hidden beach trails at Croyde, or enjoy some of the county’s famous clotted cream at Porlock – there is so much to choose from! You might also catch a glimpse of a celeb or film crew, as Devon is a haven for filmmakers!
If you’re looking for one of the most scenic drives in the UK, then Dorset is for you. The Jurassic Coast drive was rated ‘the most Instagram-worthy road trip in the UK’ and it’s no wonder. On your journey, you’ll see the likes of Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, and Sandbanks, the most expensive seaside town in Britain.
Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight is located just off the coast of Hampshire and is a small island that offers big opportunities for adventure. You can enjoy the esplanades of East Cowles, and the rolling countryside of Yarmouth, or take a calming boat ride out to the Needles – the choice is yours!
