the world's most spectacular roads

England's best scenic drives

The best beautiful driving routes in England, from journeys in Yorkshire to the Isle of Wight.

A1 past Gateshead, Tyne & Wear

The tedium of motorway miles is rewarded with a dramatic view of Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North.


Hutton-Le-Hole, N Yorks

A picture-postcard village, with a tiny stream, lush greens and the award-winning RyedaleFolkMuseum.


Humber Bridge, N Lincs/Yorks

It’s £1.50 to cross but worth it to see the world’s seventh-longest single-span suspension bridge up close.


B4632 Cheltenham to Stratford, Cotswolds

Former A-road along the edge of theCotswold Hills downgraded to B-road status, so little used but relatively wide and well-surfaced.


The A3055, Isle of Wight

The Military Road as it's known locally, from Chale to Freshwater Bay, runs almost along the cliff edge with sea to one side, rolling downland the other. At high points you can see the whole coast laid out in front of you. It's all National Trust land, so completely unspoilt until Freshwater Bay. Bad erosion though, so you need to do it soon before the road collapses into the sea.
