Driving from Manchester Airport to Monmouth next Friday...

Jump to last reply

Hi again, wow this trip has come up really fast.

We leave next Thursday and arrive into Manchester airport at 8.30am, although it is a 'really' long flight from Brisbane, we are flying B/class and usually arrive quite rested (excitement/Adrenalin aside ;-) ). We have our first 3 nights near Monmouth, Wales. I see if we drive direct on M/ways it will be approx 3 hours via M6 & M5. If we avoid M/ways and travel via the A49 it will only add under an hour. (times are obviously approximate). We don't need or want to arrive too early into Monmouth, so I'm looking for suggestions for either a detour for a pretty/scenic/ nice drive and/or somewhere lovely to stop for lunch along the way.

And is it worth avoiding the M/ways.........will the scenery and towns be worthwhile or just choose a nice lunch time detour off the m/way?

Hope this makes sense,
