Driving Cardiff to Nottingham in 1 day via Hay-on-Wye w/2 teenage girls

Jump to last reply

On Sunday, 22 June 2014 I'll be driving from Cardiff to Nottingham with 2 teenage girls, stopping in Hay-on-Wye to browse bookshops. Viamichelin.com says drive is 188 miles and 4h 22m driving, which really means a marathon day, right? Will it be easy to find lunch in Hay-on-Wye on Sunday? Suggestions for stops to stretch and have a quick look around? Michelin's route goes through Swainshill, Stretton Sugwas, Hereford, Holmer, Bransford, Rushwick, Whittington, on M5 and M42 around Birmingham, and Clifton to Nottingham. What times should we avoid Birmingham for rush hour? Any tips are appreciated, thanks!
