3 Cross-Europe Road Trips to Take from the UK

Looking to expand your horizon beyond the UK? With the right visa, you can do so without risking your Indefinite Leave to Remain or permanent citizenship in the UK. So, celebrate passing your Life in the UK test with a European road trip.
Here are a few recommendations. And before you check them out, know that you can drive in all these countries with your UK driving license. If you are from Ireland, have passed the driving theory test Ireland, and gotten your Irish driving license after passing the theory test and taking the practical test, you can use that license as well.

Wild Atlantic Way

You love coasts and this route offers just that. If you are planning a long road trip – think more than two weeks – include Wild Atlantic Way in your choices. As the world’s longest route, it spans 2500 km and will let you explore the scenic sights of Connemara, Achill Island, and the Cliffs of Moher.
Note that you cannot reach the route from the UK on road. Instead, you have to take a ferry to reach Dublin and move to Inishowen or Kinsale from there for this journey.
If you aren’t too keen about driving yourself, use a hop-on/hop-off trip bus ticket to enjoy days of unlimited travel across the route. It will save you the hassle and will not limit your exploration capacity.
But self-driving will give you even more freedom and you can drive to some nearby villages and mountains to dive deep into the scenic sights of Fanad Lighthouse, Arranmore, and Mullamore Head. 

UK to Amsterdam

If you are a history lover living in the UK, you are already living in your paradise. But you can still find more history and culture if you stretch your reach. Head to Amsterdam and rekindle your love for creativity and art by visiting Anne Frank Huis. But that’s not the only place you would like to visit in the Venice of the North.
Satiate your desire to see masterpieces of art at Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, and Stedelijk Museum. Or head to one of the botanical gardens or zoos of the capital city of the Netherlands. The city offers a lot of fun for family visits and touring friends. As you visit these destinations take your time to appreciate its beautiful canals as well.

The Troll Path in Norway

If you want to let the adventurer in you roar with happiness, you must expand your idea of a European road trip a bit. This troll path in Norway is a zig-zag road that offers one of the best driving experiences on the whole continent.
But you have to travel a lot from the UK to reach there. That includes traveling in your car as well as on a ferry.

Take Away

These were the three European road trips you can take from the UK. Note that most European road trips from the UK require you to use a ferry to get yourself and your car to another country before you can start the itinerary.
