Many Brits are setting their holiday destination sights closer to home due to increasing air travel chaos and uncertainty at UK airports due to staff shortages. Whether you want to explore the country in a caravan or motorhome or pack up your tent and hit the road – there’s no shortage of fantastic family-friendly road trip destinations in the UK.
From the iconic coastline in the south-west of England to the breathtaking Welsh countryside, all the way to the remarkable Scottish Highlands – there are plenty of tranquil staycation spots and summer touring destinations that are ideal for a UK road trip.
To take the hassle out of navigation, the team at Just Kampers has created a series of interactive UK road trip maps spanning the whole of England. Pinpointed on each of the interactive maps are campsites to make it easier to find a place to park your leisure vehicle or pitch your tent along the way.
Starting from the bottom of the country, the south-west coastline is ideal for visiting some of England’s best beaches and getting off the beaten track. Must-see historic sites include Saint Michael’s Mount in Marazion and the Minack Theatre perched on the Cornish cliffside.
There are plenty of road trip highlights in the south-east. These include a stop-off at Beachy Head Lighthouse in Eastbourne and a visit to historic Hastings before finalising the route with a dip in the refreshing waters of Margate.
Heading away from the coast, some of the UK’s best road trip destinations can be found in the Midlands. Take in the breathtaking natural beauty of the Malvern Hills in the West Midlands, or explore historic cities like Lincoln and Boston in the East Midlands.
If you want to head to the hills, check out the road trip route through Yorkshire and the Humber. Further up the country, you can explore road trip trails that wind their way through the Lake District in the north-west of England. Or, if you fancy hiking and camping in the Pennines, check out the route that meanders through the north-east.
Whether you fancy a relaxing road trip by the British seaside or a more adventurous romp through the best of the British countryside, there’s a route that’s guaranteed to pique your interest.
Here’s what Josh Reynolds from Just Kampers had to say when he spoke to CaravanTimes about getting out and exploring all that the UK has to offer.
“We’ve put together this list of interactive road trips to get people all over the UK out and about this summer, exploring new places and making new memories. Whether you’re just visiting or call the nation home, we’ve found over 300 unique points of interest across the country and made it easier than ever to enjoy them.
“The UK is filled with amazing things to see and do, so we hope these interactive road trips encourage people to get out and enjoy them.”
