Driving to Aberystwyth, you can't fail to travel through some very attractive scenery - but bear in mind you'll be doing so on a winding single carriageway road for the last couple of hours of your trip. Just be sure not to over-rely on the journey time predictions given by route-planning software!
Distances on UK road signs are given in miles and yards - a mile is equal to about 1.6 km, while a yard is slightly less than a metre. Drivers of tall or long vehicles may also like to note the size of their vehicle in feet and inches, as dimensions in metres are often missing from older height and width limit signs.
