There's so much to explore
Where to start? Motorists can trail through the wild moors of the southwest to Cornwall’s surfer-friendly bays. Pass by Bath, a spa destination since Celtic times. Cross into Wales for the second-hand bookshop capital Hay-on-Wye, or Swansea’s award-winning sandy neighbour Rhossili. Back in England, join the resident 4x4s and tick off the tearoom-filled villages of the Cotswolds before turning right for the ancient academy towns of Oxford then Cambridge.
Accelerate north for the Minsters and small-town charm of Yorkshire, Wordsworth country amidst the idyllic Lake District, and the sparsely populated, eerily ascetic Northumberland coast. Pass into Scotland and the golf courses of North Berwick. From Edinburgh it’s a 15-minute hop to hilltop Rosslyn Chapel made infamous by “The Da Vinci Code”. Glasgow and 16th-century Stirling Castle are nearby. Continue climbing for the Grampian hills, the Cairngorm massif and the jagged west coast.
Visiting Northern Ireland?
The natural beauty of Northern Ireland can be seen and believed by driving from Belfast up to The Giant’s Causeway, where 40,000 huge hexagonal black columns are waiting to be counted.
