As motoring enthusiasts, we are all counting down the days to April 12th. According to the government’s roadmap out of lockdown – and touching wood, obviously – this is the glorious day when UK-wide travel will be green-lit, and the vehicles you’ve trusted to Windrush’s long term car storage will finally be allowed off the leash.
After more than a year of on/off lockdown, you’ll naturally want to stray beyond the functional A-to-B journeys and stretch your classic’s legs with something a little more scenic. So why not try one of these breathtaking UK driving routes – before letting your vehicle wind down in style with our prestige car storage?
The Brecon Beacons
Threading from Conwyn to Cardiff, the A470 is simply the finest stretch of tarmac in Wales, with its 186-mile run serving up every kind of twist, turn and straight within beautiful scenery. Drink in the rugged peaks of Snowdonia and the Cambrians, slice through the Severn and Wye Valleys, and fork through the Brecon Beacons on the A4069 – a local legend and favourite of motoring journalists, where the widescreen views seem to put the world on pause.
The North York Moors
Sprawling across 550 miles of bleakly beautiful heather moorland, the North York Moors National Park is England in excelsis, offering an autumnal colour palette, unbroken horizons and bruised lilac sunsets that dare you to take your eyes off the road. If you only have time for one run, drive from Kirkbymooreside to York, stopping off at the postcard-perfect market town of Malton.
Glasgow to Fort William
Don’t rush this fantasy route through the Scottish Highlands. As you back off the accelerator pedal to soak up the heather-dusted panorama, cloud-shrouded mountains, and mirrored waters of Loch Lomond, you’ll swear you’ve strayed onto the film set of Highlander (and you have – it was filmed in Glencoe).
The Keswick Loop
Everything that made the Lake District the inspiration for a thousand romantic poets is summed up in this spellbinding round trip. Starting and ending at the bustling market town of Keswick, highlights include the king-of-the-world views of the Newlands Valley and Honister Pass, where you’ll look down on scenery so sublime, you may feel a Wordsworth poem coming on.
According to data scientists, the B3135 from Cheddar to Ashwick is the UK’s most enjoyable road to drive – and it’s hard to argue. There’s something otherworldly about the limestone cliffs of Cheddar Gorge – like an alien landscape transplanted into the wilds of Somerset – and as you negotiate the twists and power down the straights, lockdown has never seemed so far away.
