Rental Car from Doncaster

Heading to the UK in July and catching the train from London to Doncaster to spend a few days with friends. We are picking up a rental car from there and am plotting out our itinerary.

In reading lots of posts in forums, tourists are mentioning using google maps as a reference point.

Can anyone tell me if this website has accurate times for travel


Thanks in advance.

They are all OK. I think the RAC route planner has an option something like 'busy time of day' or something so you can factor in rush hours.

You should certainly be fine planning a rough itinerary with them- it's what I use.

Okay so just plugged in our route from Doncaster to Castle Combe for our first day of driving ...Is there anything to see in Nottingham? Leicester? We plan on stopping in Stratford Upon Avon as Stratford, Ontario is our neighbouring city.

What about Cirencester?

Thanks in advance!!

What are your interests/what would you like to see?

You may get a better response to this part of your question if you post under Nottingham/Leicester.

If canals are your thing and you want the outdoors there is foxton locks which is in beautiful leicestershire countryside with 10 working locks. See goleicestershire.com/see-and-do/Foxton-Locks…

Nottingham is of course famed for Robin Hood, though the city itself is not the focal point for Robin Hood, instead consider visting Sherwood Forest where Robin and his merry men reputedly lived.

Going back to your route planners question, I always use google maps - they offer different routs which are easily viewed on screen, and give 'real time' travel times taking into account traffic conditions. I've found them to be very good.
