North Yorkshire Moors – Whitby Road
Hairpin bends, hills and dips, and long straights make the A169 Whitby Road, from Pickering to Whitby on of the most remarkable roads to drive on. And the scenery isn’t bad either, surrounded by the natural moorland and the beautiful sea air, this road has it all.
The Peak District – The Cat and Fiddle
Named after a pub at its summit, The Cat and Fiddle section of road is one of the most demanding and challenging routes in the Peak District, as well as having amazing scenery. Well known for its steep drops, thrilling bends, twists, turns and its overall taxing nature, this road is a must for driving fans and enthusiasts.
Bealach na Ba
Being full of tight corners and having the biggest accent (2053ft) of any road climb in the UK, it isn’t hard to see why this route is Two-time British Touring Car champion John Cleland’s favourite road. A great road to visit during the summer months, this single track route provides drivers with a demanding, yet enjoyable drive.
A fun road filled with twists, turns, hills and dips, The Jurassic Coast gains its name from the fact that you can find pre-historic fossils as you walk along the coastline. Linking Weymouth and Bridport, this route is super scenic, showing off the beautiful countryside in the area.
The Lake District – The Hartside Pass
On a sunny day with clear blue skies, this route offers some of the best views of the Lake District’s Peaks as the pass is within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
