Cheddar Gorge 

In 2018 after being named one of the best driving roads in the UK, we introduce to you, Cheddar Gorge.

One of the most spectacular, enjoyable drives where you can take in the beautiful world around you from scenery to the fantastic driving route. 

Cheddar Gorge leads the path for you, split up into three sections. Each section of the Gorge is enough to impress anyone, no matter how young or how old. 

The first section of the Gorge has cliff faces rising either side, with narrow winding roads which can understandably become quite claustrophobic at times. 

The midsection of Cheddar Gorge has some stunning scenery, with lots of greenery on either side of the path. Tight, winding roads turn into sweeping bends. 

The final section of Cheddar Gorge, however, consists of long, straight roads. This allows all those involved in the road trip to take in more of the surroundings.
