Why Driving Is the Best Way to Explore the UK

The United Kingdom is filled with so many great places to visit. The beautiful city of London, the castles of Scotland andthe gorgeous landscapes of Wales are just waiting to be explored. There are many ways to fully enjoy the beauty of United Kingdom, but the best way to explore the nations is by driving. There are several reasons why driving in the UK is a good idea for your next trip.
You Can Drive with Your License
Whether you’re visiting the UK on a vacation or you’re moving to one of the cities in the country, you can easily get a car and start driving with a valid driving license from your country. The driving license is valid for up to 12 months, after which you’ll need to take a driving test and qualify for a British driving license.
The test itself is easy to pass too. There are a lot of free driving theory practice tests you can take online. Even better, you can also get a provisional driving license and still be able to drive until you qualify for a full UK driving license so long as a qualified driver is in the car with you. It’s really that simple.
You Don’t Even Need Your Own Car
Rental car companies enable you to rent a car at the airport from the moment you arrive in the UK. You also don’t need to worry about returning the car back to the same airport. If you plan to arrive at Heathrow and depart from Glasgow Airport at the end of your trip, for example, you can simply drop the rental car off at your departure airport.
This means you are free to explore the best parts of the UK through most of your holiday in the country. There is no need to allocate half of the vacation time for the trip back to Heathrow, for example, just to return the rental car.
There are a lot of support offices along the way too. Let’s say your car breaks down in the middle of the trip. You only need to contact the nearest support office and you will have a replacement car delivered to you in a matter of hours – even minutes.
The Back Roads Are Amazing
You can’t love road trips before you have one in the UK. The British countryside is an amazing place to be, filled with great – and immensely beautiful – roads to explore. You can drive for hours and not feel bored or tired at all.
Prepare for some breath-taking landscapes, great stops along the way and some of the best holiday attractions in the UK to visit as you drive around the United Kingdom. All you have to do is plan a suitable route from one point in the country to another and you will have an amazing holiday experience nonetheless.
So, what are you waiting for? Plan a road trip across the UK for your next holiday and have an amazing experience to tell your friends about back home. Be sure to use the tips we discussed in this article to make your trip that much more enjoyable.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice...
