1. Lake District 

Vanarama said: "The stunning Lake District topped Vanarama’s list for the best driving roads in the UK with a total of 37,200 yearly searches on YouTube.

"As England’s largest national park, the region spans around 912 square miles throughout the historic counties of Westmorland, Cumberland and Lancashire.

"The vast landscape of the Lake District means there’s always plenty of tarmac to keep you busy during your visit.

"Although the entire region is surrounded by beauty, some of the more famous and well-travelled routes for motoring enthusiasts include the Keswick Loop via Buttermere and Borrowdale, Grasmere to Windermere, and Ambleside to Ullswater. However, most would agree that the most challenging of routes is the Coniston Loop.

"Taking you through a mixture of picturesque villages, jaw-dropping valleys, and craggy mountains, it’s a testing route for even the most experienced drivers. The 34-mile drive is a must for anyone seeking to experience the best that the UK has to offer."
