    Additional Information About Driving in the UK

    When vacationing throughout the United Kingdom, travelers are bound to have a grand and authentic experience no matter where they travel to. Though tour bus and other modes of public transportation offer cheap ways of getting around, going from city to city across the United Kingdom is the optimal way to see the countrysides which make up this magnificent island nation.

    The capital of the entire United Kingdom is London, and this international city offers more than a British experience. With London's diverse population of people from all walks of life, one can experience an array of cultures in this old, bustling city. London is big - and busy! When travelers need a break, they can head to the quieter city of Birmingham. Birmingham is an old industrial city in the West Midlands of the United Kingdom. Birmingham is located 162 km northwest of London. When traveling along route M40, you can retreat from the bustling London to the calmer Birmingham in a little over 2 hours.

    Interested in driving across the majority of the United Kingdom? Consider traveling from Edinburgh, Scotland all the way down to Bristol, England! The distance between Edinburgh and Bristol is 502 km, and along route M6, the journey from opposite ends of the island nation only takes less than 7 hours. The journey can be stretched out over a course of several days if you decide to visit cities like Liverpool, Manchester, or Birmingham, along the way.

    A more exciting journey that will literally take you from island to island? Traveling from the historically turbulent Northern Irish city of Belfast to England's Stoke-on-Trent is a 302 km journey that will require a ferry ride from Dublin! The ferry ride from Dublin to Wales takes up to 3 hours - but if you're in no hurry, this is the greatest journey one could ever take when visiting the United Kingdom! You'll visit Northern Ireland, Ireland, Wales, and the United Kingdom, all in one go! Take your time. The journey is only 7 hours - but there is far too much to see and do in between!
