There is nothing like hitting to open road on a beautiful sunny day. And, the UK has some of the most scenic drives due to its varied landscape. And, this Lake District route has topped the charts as the UK’s best scenic drive.
Vanarama, a vehicle leasing company, analysed some of the UK’s top road trips and, unsurprising to some the Lake District was named the UK’s top route with over 37,000 searches on YouTube. If you’re looking to get away in the UK this summer, it looks like you’ve found your answer.
The most popular Lake District routes included the Keswick Loop, Grasmere to Windermere and the Coniston Loop (which is the most challenging according to Vanarama). Experience jaw-dropping valleys and beautiful crystal lakes as you make your way through the 912 square miles that the Lake District covers.
No Yorkshire routes such as Buttertubs Pass featured on the list, but the Peak District was voted the fourth most popular road trip and is only a short drive from Sheffield.
