Windermere to Bangor
Orignal route by Nick Carthew - RouteXpert
Forest of Bowland AONB. RP 4
This route will take you from the Lake District National Park to Snowdonia National Park by only using 2 short sections of motorway. This route travels through beautiful English countryside, passing through pretty villages and across the Forest of Bowland AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). A lunch or coffee stop is marked at route point (RP) 6 in the beautiful village of Slaidburn, next to the River Hodder. The route by-passes the busy city of Preston by joining the M6 motorway for just a short distance before taking the A59 to Liverpool. At Liverpool, there is an option at RP 14 to visit Crosby Beach and the art installation called 'Another Place' by Sir Antony Gormley. It features 100 cast iron figures of himself dotted all over the beach, it is quite a spectacle to see.
Next is through the Kingsway Tunnel that will take you under the River Mersey and onto another short section of motorway M53. The tunnel is free for motorcycles, keep over to the left as you exit the tunnel as there is a separate lane for motorcycles. This is the first of 4 tunnels, the others are after you cross into Wales and are all on the North Wales Expressway A55, this will take you to a budget hotel where you can then plan your routes for exploring Wales.

About this region
Yorkshire and the Humber is one of nine official regions of England at the first level of Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) for statistical purposes. It comprises most of Yorkshire (the administrative areas of South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull, North Yorkshire and the City of York), as well as North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland or other areas of the historic county of Yorkshire, are not included. The largest settlements are Leeds, Sheffield, Bradford, Hull, and York. The population in 2011 was 5,284,000.The committees for the regions, including the one for Yorkshire and the Humber, ceased to exist upon the dissolution of Parliament on 12 April 2010; they were not re-established by the newly elected House. Regional ministers were not reappointed by the incoming Coalition Government, and the Government Offices were abolished in 2011. Due to British vote to exit of the EU in 2016, NUTS regions waned in importance. By 2021 (set leaving date to take effect when the year begins), using NUTS regions all together will become unoffical with British regulators choosing to adopt or create new statistical divisioning of England.
