We tend to associate road trips with giant, open countries like the US, Canada and Australia. Does that mean that you can’t go on a great road in the UK? It certainly doesn’t. The following are some great routes around the country which you should give a try when you get the chance to do so.
The Lake District Drive
Most people think of the Lake District as being a fantastic place for walking or climbing but it also offers the chance for a spectacular drive or two. One fine idea is to take the A592 from Ambleside all way through to Pooley Bridge. This is a short trip of less than half an hour but the road is windy and gives some amazing views over Ullswater Lake. This is a trip to be enjoyed in a leisurely way, so be sure to take your time and stop now and then to soak it all in.
