Britain's road network is one of the safest in the world: the rates of serious accidents have been falling for more than 30 years now. But that doesn't mean that we're short of roads that can feel just a little bit scary. From hairpin bends on steep mountainsides to bridges high over swirling rivers, driving in Britain is far from dull, especially when you add in along a notoriously haunted road or two, or a particularly remote winding country road.

We've selected some of our favourite scary drives around the country. Tell us below if you have any you think we should add to our slideshow!
