Driving a left-hand drive car in U.K.

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first-ever trip to the U.K. this June. We live in Stuttgart and after looking at flight prices and the cost of renting a car, are beginning to seriously consider driving our own car from Stuttgart. Advantages include that our car is an automatic with A/C and navi, all things we would have to pay a premium for in England. We are experienced drivers, very comfortable driving in Europe, and normally prefer manual over automatic, but we have never driven in the U.K. and know that an automatic would be preferable.

We are planning to do a LOT of driving - basically a grand tour of England and a bit of Scotland over two weeks. We are only planning one day in London and one day in Edinburgh; we want to spend most of our time in the countryside.

I'd like to know if anyone has thoughts about driving a left-hand drive car in the U.K. for the first time on this sort of trip. Thanks!
