I recently shared my Tips For Road Tripping Around The UK so I thought I’d follow up with a list of my top UK road trip destinations.
The key to planning any road trip is figuring out how much time you have for your trip vs where you want to go vs how long you want to drive for each day.
If you don’t know where to start planning your trip or are in need of some inspiration of places to visit in the UK, here’s a few locations to get the creative juices flowing..
Oxford – home to the world-famous university and plenty of historic sites.
Bath – known for its natural hot springs that were popular back in Ancient Roman times.
Salisbury – old medieval town home to the magna carta.
Stratford-upon-Avon – the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
Liverpool – industrial city that was the birthplace of The Beatles.
Cornwall – Avoid Cornwall in July and August, it’s crazy busy. Here are some things to do in Cornwall.
Devon – Both North and South Devon have incredible sandy beaches with turquoise waters and plenty of coves and things to see. Incredibly scenic and much less crowded than Cornwall in the summer.
Dorset – The New Forest covers parts of both Hampshire and Dorset and is one of the best places to visit. There are hundreds of walks and car parks, as well as multiple campsites if you’re travelling with a tent.
Hampshire – Visit the New Forest or take a day trip to the Isle of Wight. This beautiful island has plenty to discover, including some of the best views and beaches in England.
Wiltshire – Think Salisbury, Durdle door and Stonehenge – an iconic prehistoric monument.
Pretty much all of it, but you should particularly visit..
Isle of Skye – A popular island known for its picturesque fishing village, rugged landscapes & castles.
Edinburgh – Scotland’s capital and home to Scotland’s crown jewels.
Glasgow – Scotland’s cultural hub.
Southern Wales – Don’t miss the waterfall walk or the show caves.
Cardiff – Wales’ capital with a beautiful redeveloped waterfront.
I hope this post has helped you plan a UK road trip and I wish you an incredible trip.
Let me know where you end up!
