Stretching from London to Edinburgh, the A1 crosses some of the most-photographed countryside in the British Isles and, of course, it’s an invaluable route for any business traveller. Constructed parallel to the old coaching route, the Great North Road, the A1 has a tradition of comfortable wayside inns offering hospitality for travellers.
We have numerous A1 hotels that are ideal for busy motorists on their way to a business trip or a family holiday, so why not check in?
