Explore the Route

Welcome to the South West 660 – one of the world’s best road trips. 

The 660-mile drive around the south west peninsula uses a careful selection of smaller roads that hug the coasts of Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and Somerset.

That’s why the route offers great views of sandy beaches, pretty fishing villages, rugged headlands…and the sea.
