Top 5: British Roads

Terrible weather aside, this Summer’s been off to a great start. For those of you who still drive for fun, or want to start, we’ve put together a list of our favourite British roads that’ll put you and your car to the test while showing you some of the best countryside in the UK.

A591: Kendal to Keswick, Cumbria

Sometimes it isn’t just about the driving…

Is the A591 really the best driving road in the UK? We think so: the combination of bends, stretches to really accelerate, and spectacular scenery provides a near perfect driving experience. It’s that good, even science says it’s the best.

A498: Beddgelert to Betws-Y-Coed, Snowdonia

Snowdon from one of the many viewpoints.

Cutting right through the heart of Snowdonia National Park, right within view of Snowdon itself, and past the beautiful Llyn Gwynant. The A498 will take you through some of the very best Wales has to offer.

A5, A543 & B4501: The Evo Triangle, North Wales

Lots of this.

One of the most talked about routes in the UK, and one of the most popular roads among driving enthusiasts. Named as such because Evo Magazine absolutely love it. There’s not any hairpin turns, or particularly min-blowing views – but this set of roads will test both driver and car alike.

A537: Macclesfield to Buxton, Peak District

A view of the junction near the Cat & Fiddle.

The A537 sweeps through the Peak District: full of twisting and challenging bends, and home to many motorcycle enthusiasts. Worth a visit just to grab a pint in the Cat & Fiddle and soak up the Yorkshire views on a clear day.

A39: Barnstaple to Minehead, Exmoor

Stunning scenery between Minehead & Barnstaple

This road really is an adventure for everyone: stunning views of the Severn Estuary, a huge sense of freedom and space from the open moors, and a road layout of hairpins, chicanes and fast straights that’ll keep you on your toes. 36 miles of British countryside paradise.
