It’s never too early to start planning your next road trip, especially if it’s behind the wheel of a BMW Convertible. So we’ve compiled a list of the six most scenic driving routes to enjoy across the UK. Immerse yourself in the sublime luxury of The 8 or stay connected with The Z4’s Intelligent Personal Assistant.

NORTH: THE PEAK DISTRICT.

Head to: Snake Pass.

Open up the view of the Peak District and take a trip down Snake Pass for one of the most thrilling drives in the UK. Stop off at the Snake Pass Inn (from which the road’s name is derived) for a meal or a night if you wish to break the drive up. You won’t be surprised to find a few fellow Convertibles in the car park.

EAST: NORFOLK COAST (AONB).

Head to: The North Norfolk Coast Nature Reserve.

Known as an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, the clue is in the title with the Norfolk Coast. Enjoy unbeatable coastal roads, sleepy small-town stopovers, fish and chips and if you’re lucky, grey seals. The drive through the saltmarshes between Sheringham and Blakeney is perhaps the most notable, where a perfect and distinctly British landscape awaits you.

SOUTH: THE NEW FOREST.

Head to: Lyndhurst.

An example of Britain’s beautiful countryside at its finest, any drive in the New Forest District will hit the spot – but head through Lyndhurst following the A35 to get to the heart of the area. Glide through the rich forestry in complete control with BMW’s trademark driving dynamics and precision handling. Golf enthusiasts can plan a trip around the golfing facilities on offer in the area, while those wishing to head further south can pick up the A13 towards Poole Harbour – another beautiful spot best enjoyed with the roof down.

WEST/WALES: BREACON BEACONS.

Head to: Black Mountain Pass.

An area built for Convertibles, the A4069 winds through some of Wales’ finest hills. Known for hairpin corners and stray sheep, this drive is for real explores or BMW drivers. Reaching over 1,600 feet above sea level, this thrilling drive is best enjoyed at dusk.

Brecon Beacons

SCOTLAND: THE HIGHLANDS.

Head to: Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

From the A82 northwards, there’s so much to stop, see and take in. This spectacular drive is packed with photo opportunities, from Loch Lomond and Three Sisters Point, to views of Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain. Whether your roof’s up or down, enjoy the roads to their full potential in the signature comfort of a BMW Convertible.

Loch Lomond

NORTHERN IRELAND: THE CAUSEWAY COASTAL ROAD.

Head to: Giant’s Causeway.

Potentially one of the finest drives in the world, let alone in the UK – this drive along the A2 towards Giant’s Causeway has it all, with blue seas on one side and Irish hills on the other. Be sure to stop off at the Giant’s Causeway itself and marvel at this 50 million year old geological masterpiece. Built for adventure, in any BMW Convertible the drive is as thrilling as the backdrop.
