Places In The UK We'd Travel To If We Had A Car

It's pretty much the bane of my life that Katy and I don't have a car. For both of us, it would make life a lot simpler - only day to day it's really not that practical as we both have to pass through toll booths on the way to and from our workplaces and university campuses. Having said that - it really doesn't stop us dreaming about where we'd go if we did have a little run around; foreign holidays are fun, but UK travel trips are cheap and easy (and we could go somewhere like every weekend instead of every month or few months). So, without further ado, here are the places that Katy and I would travel to if we did have a car.

1: Stonehenge
Katy's dream location, and one that's a pain to get to. We have always wanted to go here since we got together, but to get here we have to pretty much take a day trip to London and get the coach from London, through other tourist attractions, to Stonehenge. It's expensive, would allow us about an hour there and all in all it's just never seemed that worth it to go down that route. When we have a car though, this is definitely top on our list of priorities.

2: Edinburgh
A place that Katy has never been to, and a place that holds a real place in my heart. We have blog friends here, they have good cupcake places here, and I'd just love to see one of the magical places that I've ever been to without the sheer amount of crowds that came when I went last in the midst of the Edinburgh Fringe festival. Going and staying a few nights here could be really cheap if we could drive, and so fingers crossed this will be one of the first places that we go to when we do get a car.

3: Chester
This is, admittedly, really close to home but getting here takes longer than getting to Manchester from our house as you have to rely on trains. There's some really good escape rooms here, really good food and pretty scenery - but most of all it's where Katy and I used to spend most of our time together when we first met and one/both of us went to university here. Chester is just a place that holds some real nostalgia for me and I do wish we could visit more, without taking four hours travel time out of our day to practically do so.

Although this definitely is a wishful thinking type post, it is written in collaboration with TyrePlus who want you to #testyourtreads. Keeping your tyres in working order isn't just something that is vital to your safety, it's actually something you need to do by law, so for tips on how to do so, check the infographic below.

So now that you've tested your tire treads, checked you're safe to go and read where I'd like to travel, make sure you leave below where you'd travel if you had a car (or where your first ever big trip was to if you already have one!)
