Two Yorkshire Road Trips Have Been Named In The Top 10 In The UK

The UK has some stunning landscapes, that can’t be denied. From Scotland down to Cornwall, it varies from scarily high peaks to swathes of amazing flat stretches of land where you can see for miles.

Embarking on a great British road trip sounds like a fantastic idea when you consider all there is to see. And, Premier Inn agrees as the hotel company has analysed data from Pinterest and Google searches to find out which road trips in the UK have people talking the most.

And, two of Yorkshire’s own have featured in the list of the top 10 road trips to try in 2023. Yes, we know – one is strictly the Peak District, but it joins on to Yorkshire so we are counting it.

First of them on the list was Snake’s Pass in second place which connects Manchester to Sheffield snaking its way across the moorland along a dangerously winding road with twists and blind turns that are quite the adrenaline rush.

Snake’s Pass in the Peak District was pipped to first place by the North Coast 500 in Scotland taking home the silver medal, which is still impressive.

Next on the list was the other side of Yorkshire, the North York Moors. More specifically the A169 makes its way across the heathered moorland taking in the impressive ‘Hole of Horcum‘ which is quite the hairpin bend.

The route feels less dangerous than the Snakes Pass, but it is still hard going in poor weather. The North York Moors route came in 10th place, just sneaking into the list at the end.
