The Birth Place of William Shakespeare, is at the very heart of this route, in Stratford-upon-Avon. From here, the Midlands Loop offers a choice of four different directions for your road-trip adventure. We recommend, first, heading North towards Coventry and Leicester, then over towards East Anglia, and the Norfolk Coast. Pass by the Northern outskirts of London and cross the country once more heading North West, via Stratford, to Chester and the breath-taking roads of Snowdonia in the Principality of Wales. Once this enchanting country has found its way into your heart, cross back into England by the Malvern Hills, on your way back to Stratford in the Midlands.
This route gives a full and in-depth experience of Britain, encompassing the diversity of culture, scenery, industry and language found across the country. From relaxed countryside driving, to the hectic mayhem of “Motor-City,” to the extraordinary mountain passes of Wales, you’ll encounter almost every type of driving experience on this route
Perhaps that’s why UK Car Culture is at its strongest in this region, so be sure to choose something special for driving this route. Watch out for camouflaged test cars, from the various car makers along the route, being put through their paces on these excellent roads.
Along the way you’ll find quaint heritage towns and historic villages, just moments away from the big industrial cities. The National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty will take your breath away and turn an otherwise ordinary road-trip into an incredible adventure.
