UK – Self Drive

What it’s all about

UK Self-drive – Southern England, Wales and Scotland

Unforgettable highlights

Our route took us to Devon and Cornwall, where we drove all the smaller B roads.  Then up to the Cotswolds, into South Wales, back to England and to Bath.  Then seeing as the weather was not good up north, we headed south!  This time to the New Forest which I enjoyed immensely, seeing all the donkeys and ponies roaming around freely.  From the New Forest we finally took the motorway and drove to York, Lake District, and into Scotland.

Overall, I couldn’t fault a thing and would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

Insider tips

While in London I did a Walking tour of the British Museum with an historian which was very interesting along with a walking tour of historic London pubs.

Europe Car were absolutely fine – the pick-up from Paddington Station was very close to our Mercure Hotel, and was all done very efficiently.  The car was a good, low km smallish car. It served us well for the entire trip and we dropped it off in Edinburgh with no problems.

Suits a traveller who

Likes to explore independently at your own pace!

Travel essentials

We had a route planned but due to weather we changed to suit so have some flexibility to go with the flow.

Be aware

Roads are very narrow as most are county lanes so having a smaller rather than larger car is a good idea.
