Driving from SW London to Mawgan Porth in Cornwall. Anyone advise on the best route to take?? Friday lunchtime if that makes any difference. thanks

M4, M5, A30
no idea if it is best or not

Yep, M4, M5, A30.

Is there any other way?

Watch out for the speed cameras on the later bits of the M4 though (past Newbury)

Definitely M4,M5,A30 - avoid the A303 on Fridays at all costs!!!

Although, the roadworks on the bridge at Bristol are a bit nasty at the moment. But providing you hit Bristol before about 4.00pm you should be fine!

Excellent,thank you

PS: Ditto the speed cameras on the M4 and there are some average speed cameras in the roadworks on the M5 that are really nasty!

Yep, M4, M5, A30 is the only answer if you don't mind a dull motorway drive. The A303 is fine if you don't mind it taking 6 hours to get there, sometimes we do it though just because the views are nicer.

Love Mawgan Porth!

Morning - Hope you've already heard about this and have planned another route, but 25 miles of the M5 have been closed
