You have a 30-mile stretch here which starts in Lake District National Park & takes you through a beautiful winding section offering unmatched vista of Lakeland fells & banks of the Lake Windermere & Lake Thirlmere.

Be careful though, as here you have cliff faces and ample twists & turns due to a gorge which altogether assure a high adrenaline rush. No wonder, it’s a must have for adventure lovers. However, you have to be more serious about agility here over power. After you pass the gorge, the second section commences with trees, tight turns & relaxing sweeping bends.

However, the road has its own share of twists & undulating for around 2 miles prior it gets to a straight mile.

You will start with a flat forest and then you will cross a single track hosting the metal bridge for more than 3 decades before taking your way to the charming Langwathby & Melmerby villages. From there, you have the route climbing up to as much as Hartside Summit (a great 1904 ft). in case, you will feel like stopping for a while, you have a café there on Hartside which is very popular among the travellers here. next, you will drive down to Alston which represents England’s highest market-town and you will love the market place there. However, be careful if you are travelling in winter as the road here is steep & cobbled which could be challenging in colder months. finally, you will have Alston welcoming you with its picturesque view as you drive right towards Haydon Bridge.

 

A153, connecting Horncastle & Louth

With its outstanding scenic beauty, the AI53 is a charm to drive on anyday.

 

A258, Dover-Deal

 

You are getting a nice rollercoaster ride here that takes you along the glorious countryside of Kent, indulging you in impressive heritage castles & refreshing sea breeze. The route reminds of an exciting race track where you have sweeping bends & frequent elevation changes which altogether assure an unforgettable drive. It starts with Dover marina taking you beneath East Cliff and you will suddenly find yourself ascending whoosh from 0-level right to a stunning 408 ft over sea level. You will love the serpentine route leading the magnificent Dover Castle and as you reach hilltop you have an exciting downhill S-bend waiting for you. The final leg takes you to the historical fishermen community of Strand along a breezy seaside with wide pebble-beach & quirky shops at the sides.
