Far from being just a means of getting from A to B, the UK's highways are hugely varied, exciting and often, well, 'challenging'. What they lack in logic and practicality, they more than make up for in charm and personality.

Celebrate the eccentricities of the nation's highways and scroll through our gallery of the UK's most unusual roads. From exclusive roads that you need a permit to drive down, to magical roundabouts, to haunted highways!

Tell us your favourite or most notable roads and why, and we'll enter them into next year's UK's Unusual Road Awards. At long last, your favourite road (or pothole) may get the appreciation it deserves!
