Road Trip: The UK Open Road

We are well into the Summer Holiday's here in the UK, and it has been so incredibly lovely to have Leo at home all this time with no school run and no real commitments to adhere too. In fact we have been completely selfish in everything that we haven chosen to do, because that's what the beauty of the summer holiday is all about right!?

It is the perfect time to pack up the car (don't forget the children!) and head out on a family road trip to see all of the incredible sites that the UK has to offer. has put together their top tips on what to look out for, and a whole host of things that you can see and do so that you can plan the rest of your summer break with the kids!

The General Manager of My Voucher Codes Chris Reilly spoke about the popular family getaways:
“We are so lucky here in the UK to have so many options for a getaway, with fantastic places to visit for families, you won’t be short of things to do this summer. Who needs to head to the US to take a road trip, we have plenty here in the UK, with equally exciting scenery and a whole host of things to do along the way.
He added:
“It can get expensive keeping the family entertained during the summer holidays. Step out onto the open road and explore all the UK has to offer, there are plenty of places you can visit which don’t cost the earth to enjoy or are even free! So pack up a picnic and map and see where the road takes you.”.

One of the great routes shared is the Snake Pass which just so happens to be one of the most famous routes in the UK. It takes you all the way from Sheffield along the A57 Snake Pass road, along the A537 Cat and Fiddle road and through the absolutely beautiful Peak District National Park. It covers Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire, a route of 51.9 miles, but if you really want to experience it, you really have to stop and take in the sights that present themselves along the way!

  • Chestnut Centre Otter, Owl and Wildlife Park – From £5.95pp
There is something really exciting about just packing up the car with a picnic and a new adventure calling your name, it makes me just want to hop into the car and take off with the roof down to see where I end up. I have been stuck to find ways to keep Leo entertained over the summer break, but I think even he would love the idea of not really knowing where we will end up! With a few weeks of the holiday left before Leo goes back to school, maybe we will pack the car and head off at first light and see where the road takes us.
