The UK is filled with quaint villages and lush green hills throughout its countryside, along with bustling cities like London and historic towns like Stratford-upon-Avon. Clearly, there are plenty of places to see and things to do, but if you want to plan an itinerary that will allow you to see as much of your favourite places as possible, consider taking a road trip.

Continue reading for a few tips that will help you plan the UK road trip that you’ll never forget.

Plan Your Route

The first step involves planning your route so that you can determine exactly where your road trip will begin and end and everything that you will see in between. There are many scenic drives that you can take, and you can also stop off at beaches in Cornwall or the Outer Hebrides.

If you are going to be planning a day in a city like London, where parking can be difficult to find and searching for a parking spot can cause you to lose a lot of time, you should reserve your parking space in advance so that it will be waiting for you when you arrive. In this way, you don’t lose precious time and you can get back on the road right on schedule.

Determine Your Accommodation and Book It

It is also a good idea to book your accommodation in advance. You may need just one place to stay during your trip or you may need multiple places to stay in, depending upon how far you go and how long your road trip will be.

Book your hotels and inns before you head out on the road so that the rooms will be waiting for you and you do not have to deal with sold out hotels that require you keep driving and looking for an alternative when you are already really tired. Remember to book plenty of time for sleeping, resting, and eating along the way so that you can stay alert behind the wheel at all times.

Cross the Isles Using Ferries

There are ferry services that allow you to travel between Ireland, Northern Ireland, and mainland UK, and what makes this a great way to travel is the fact that you can hop aboard along with your car. It is a great opportunity for you to take a break from driving, stretch your legs by walking around a bit and getting blood flowing, and enjoy the gorgeous scenery. Depending upon where you want to go, you can choose the ferry port that will take you to your preferred destination in no time. Then you can hop back into your car and keep going. 

Now that you know the main steps that you need to take when planning a UK road trip, you can head out and explore with confidence. Whether you are going to be driving for a week or a couple of days, you can expect to see some pretty beautiful, unique sights, so be sure to bring your camera.
