Stunning Scenic Drives in the UK​

Why not make the most of the Great British Summer and take the car out for a spin? Driving doesn't have to be an infuriating bumper-to-bumper commute; it can be fun and exhilarating given the right landscapes.

There is no need to worry about planning your route either; with Mercedes-Benz navigation the system does it all for you so you can enjoy a whirlwind journey around some of Britain’s greatest roads.

There are thousands of miles of open roads with views so stunning they rival those from across the world. This kind of driving is anything but stressful. Here are some of our favourites...

Land's End to St Ives along the A30

The A30 and B3306 hug the untouched Cornish coast, offering driver’s stunning views of Whitesand Beach, Sennen Cove and the Cornish Cape, as well as coast village gems like Zennor and Pendeen.

The A3055, Isle of Wight

The road from Chale to Freshwater Bay runs almost along the cliff edge with sea to one side and rolling hills to the other. Be quick though, it’s eroding and could disappear into the sea.

Kendal to Keswick via the A591

This winding section of the A591 in the Lake District National Park is a 30-mile stretch of road with unbeatable views of Lakeland fells and the banks of Lake Windermere and Lake Thirlme. This route provides scenes nothing short of spectacular.

The Humber Bridge, N. Lincolnshire/Yorkshire

The Humber Bridge near Kingston upon Hull, England is £1.50 to cross but worth it to see the world’s seventh-longest single-span suspension bridge up close. The bridge itself can be seen as far as Ottringham in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The Glens of Antrim

Passing through the quaint villages of Ballygalley, Glenarm, and Waterfoot the Antrim coast road skirts around the foot of each of the nine glens and runs for 25 miles from the Black Arch near Larne to the Red Arch near Cushendall.

A4069 Black Mountain Road, Powys

Up there with some of the most scenic drives in the world, the five-mile stretch of the A4069 in Powys is spectacular with quiet roads that dip and twist through the Brecon Beacons National Park.

B4632 Cheltenham to Stratford, Cotswolds

Take a drive on the B4632 along the edge of the Cotswold Hills to the viewpoint on Stockwell Common with incredible views across the Malvern Hills and the Vale of Gloucester, and on a clear day, you can see all the way to the Black Mountains in Wales.
