The cost of flights and train fares are constantly going up especially during holiday seasons. For families and large groups, driving can often be one of the best ways to travel. Even so, it’s not especially fun to cram a bunch of people into a car or even a few cars and fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. There are several areas in England that can be thoroughly enjoyed by a road trip and many people really enjoy going that way in a comfortable minibus. Getting a minibus licence is fairly straightforward and many companies can help you with this, as well as offering Class 2 licences if needed. When you want to stay in the UK, then a minibus can be a great way to experience your holiday and may be enjoyed even more than with other choices.
Experience the Cotswolds
If you like quaint historic villages as well as endless meadows and rolling hills, the Cotswolds is among one of the holiday favourites for many families and couples. Anyone can easily drive there and enjoy lots of scenic beauty and it’s a fantastic place to explore when travelling in a minibus. When you arrive you can stop off at a village, go for a long walk and enjoy country living while still being only a short drive to the capital city.
Enjoy the Yorkshire Dales
Often referred to as God’s own country, the area is dramatic. It’s well known for its untouched greenery and it makes for a perfect place to get away from hectic city life and gives you a chance to really breathe some fresh air and relax. You can enjoy the flowing rivers and waterfalls along with wild landscapes and you can go on peaceful walks while enjoying the local farms and quaint villages. If you’ve never seen dry stone walling, this will be your chance and you’ll see just how much skill it takes.
See the Lake District
This is an area that has stunning views of the Lake District and this draws in lots of couples and families. The swimming there is divine and it has a lot of scenic hills as well as having a number of roads that allow you to enjoy a scenic drive through the lake district. There are also camping opportunities and specific sites that cater to those who want to really get away from it all and simply spend time sailing and swimming.
Visit Devon and Cornwall
If you want to go down south then this is where you could consider going as it has a bit warmer weather than other parts of the country and some spectacular sandy beaches. There are a wide number of tree varieties to see that don’t grow elsewhere because the area has a tropical climate. It’s also a great opportunity to visit fishing villages or to go cycling in the countryside.
Enjoy the Peak District
The name of this area gives you a good indication of what you can expect when visiting there. The area has a number of hilly peaks and these include Dark Peak to the north as well as White Peak to the South which is where the limestone valleys are located as well as small towns and villages. The area has spectacular views and a national park that is beloved.
Going on one of these trips will require a license but it’s not something you should be afraid of. All you need is the right advice and a little help and you’ll quickly be enjoying the English holiday roads and exploring all they have to offer in no time. Start preparing today.
