It is easy to see why hiring a motorhome and spending a few weeks exploring coastal roads and beautiful national parks has become a tradition in the UK. If you are new to driving a motorhome, you may be a bit nervous about navigating the narrow roads in the countryside.

If you are visiting any cities and you are nervous about driving on the busy roads, it can be a good idea to leave your motorhome in a designated car park or holiday park on the outskirts of the city.
