Getting the Car Prepared

Before looking at some of the best places for a road trip, it is important to touch on getting the car prepared. The last thing that you want on a road trip is to have car issues, so you should carry out maintenance beforehand. Whether it’s replacing tyres, or even looking to replace other wear and tear items, it is a good idea to get your car serviced so that you know it is in the best condition before hitting the open road.

So, where are some of the best road trips in the UK?

Causeway Coastal Route

If you want to see some of the UK’s most stunning and dramatic natural beauty then the Causeway Coastal Route in Northern Ireland should be on your list. The 130-mile route taking you from Belfast to Derry-Londonderry along the coast will show you many of the biggest tourist attractions and landmarks, including the iconic Giant’s Causeway. 

The Cotswolds

If you like the idea of visiting charming and quaint English villages and exploring the glorious countryside then a road trip to the Cotswolds could be ideal for you and your friends. This is a beautiful part of England with many scenic towns and villages filled with cosy pubs and restaurants and surrounding countryside with plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities. 

The Atlantic Highway

The Atlantic Highway in the southwest is known to be one of the best road trips in all of Europe. This is because it is one long road stretching from Bath to Falmouth showing you the amazing beauty in this area with rolling hills and a dramatic coastline. There are also lots of places to stop off along the way, including Newquay which is one of the best seaside towns in the UK and a great place for a group of friends. 

If you are planning a road trip with your friends then hopefully this post will give you a few ideas for places to visit. Hopefully, it will also encourage you to make sure that your car is in the best condition before hitting the road!
