With the cost of travel soaring higher than a jumbo jet, more and more people are choosing simply to stay put, enjoying what generations of Brits did long before the airliner age – exploring England by road. For such a relatively small country, Britain has some of the nicest views around; our road network – much as we like to moan about it – is actually pretty remarkable, and extends tentacle-like to touch some of the most amazing places.
Roads with a View is not just another travel guide. This one has been written by a driver especially for fellow motorists, and provides detailed accounts of the best roads to drive on, and the best places to drive to for that stunning front seat view.
With specially drawn maps, stunningly beautiful colour photography from some of the England’s finest landscape photographers, and plenty of travel advice on where to eat, where to stay, and what to do, this unique guide lifts the lid on parts of England that are often overlooked.
The author has made sure to include information for everyone – driver as well as passengers – as you seek out England’s finest landscapes. With advice on where to stay and where to eat, as well as what to do when you get to the view, this really is an invaluable travel guide.
