Plan for the Drive from York to Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

We are now pretty set on your wonderful suggestions about rearranging our first plan and now, after our 6 days in London, we think we will take the train to York and stay overnight there. Then we plan on hiring a car and take two days to continue to Edinburgh, spending 4 days in Edinburgh (is that too much? Should we do another day en route there?) What is the best stopover place? Alnwick?

I went back and did a search and found this reply but it was from 10 years ago

"A1 negotiates Tyneside (which can be slow). Further north it is mainly good single carriageway. It is fairly fast and boring but carries a fair bit of lorry traffic. It gives access to castles at Warkworth, Dunstanburgh, Alnwick and Bamburgh. Other attractions include Holy Island and Berwick. Scenery is mainly pleasant, gentle farmland with some good sea views."

Would A1 be the best route still? How would you all plan the two (or 3 days) in terms of what to see and where to stay?
