With the cost of travel soaring higher than a jumbo jet, more and more people are choosing simply to stay put, enjoying what generations of Brits did long before the airliner age – exploring Britain by road. Roads With A View is not just another travel guide. This one has been written by a driver especially for fellow motorists, and provides detailed accounts of the best roads to drive on, and the best places to drive to for that stunning front seat view.  With specially drawn maps, beautiful color photography from some of the UK’s finest landscape photographers, and plenty of travel advice on where to eat, where to stay, and what to do, this unique guide lifts the lid on parts of England that are often overlooked.
