Sometimes the fun of going away - for however long - is about more than just being somewhere different; it's about taking a break from what you're used to, and trying something new.
So even if you come by car, why not try leaving it where you're staying for a day, or a week, and take the opportunity to get around differently? It's never been easier (or more important) to leave the car behind: between buses, trains, bikes and your boots, you've got everything covered: towns, villages, attractions or just pure beauty. No jams or fumes, no pay and display, no whose-turn-to-have-a-drink? quandaries, and the world won't shrink to the size of your windscreen either.
