    roadtrip advise

    Hey lads,

    just wondering: part of a massive Roadtrip next year, will be through the UK (arriving in Pembroke) and going to Folkestone (Tunnel).
    Besides looking at google maps and all that, i was wondering if there is any tips or things to avoid/do or just to be aware of?

    We have 1.5hrs for breaks, but might end up taking the later tunnel crossing which would give us 3 hours for breaks and all that.
    Besides the route that we are gonna follow via google maps, anything else to be aware of etc?

    Thanks

    Could plot a route through the Wye Valley, Cotswolds and the Downs if you had enough time. Some nice roads there.

    I would say, if you want to make a nice trip of it, don't drive the entire length of the M4 if you do hit the Cotswolds. It's very possibly the most boring road in the world.

    If you take the earlier crossing it's probably best to just stick to the motorways as you're more likely to make it in time.
