The Most Beautiful Roads In The World


A44, United Kingdom

It might not seem like this road is anything out of the ordinary at first glance. It’s a road in rural England and Wales, running from Oxford in the English south to Aberystwyth in Wales. Although you might assume a leisurely drive with the occasional sheep or cow is what’s in store, this road isn’t quite as simple as you’d imagine.

To begin with, it has some of the tightest bends in the whole of Great Britain, which means it’s difficult to overtake but easy to get stuck. Also, the directions of the lanes are switched up randomly which can lead to puzzlement and risky situations unless you’re familiar with the road.
