The 15 Most Spectacular Drives in the UK

Urban Britain may seem crowded, but if you know where to go, it doesn’t take long before you can escape the traffic lights and road rage.

The UK is undeniably blessed with some of Europe’s greenest and most beautiful scenery, so despite the stereotypes about the bad weather, a trip to the British countryside is a very good way to take a break.

Moreover, as Brexit looms closer, the harsh reality that we may potentially no longer get cheap Spanish getaways is starting to set in.

So, how better to finish your summer than by journeying out on the open road and seeing the picturesque landscapes the country has to offer and saving some pennies at the same time?

Here at RaceChip, we have picked 15 of the UK’s most beautiful stretches of road to create this guide to help you plan a truly epic road trip. With leisurely winding single-tracks, thrilling mountain pass drives and jaw-dropping scenery, there is something for everyone.

We’ll leave you with words of one of literature’s most loveable rogues - Toad from the classic book ‘Wind in the willows’:

The open road, the dusty highway, the heath, the common, the hedgerows, the rolling downs! Camps, villages, towns, cities! Here to-day, up and off to somewhere else to-morrow! Travel, change, interest, excitement! The whole world before you, and a horizon that's always changing!
