Driving in England is different than driving in the United States. The steering wheel is on the right side of the car and people drive on the left side of the road. Circles or “roundabouts” can also be challenging. It is suggested that you rent a car with automatic transmission so you have one less thing to concentrate on while getting acquainted with the English roads. Please make sure to plot the cities in the direction you are traveling because exit signs list the cities in the direction the road is going as opposed to “east,” “west,” “south,” etc. The roads in the UK are well marked but you must pay close attention to the signs, particularly when approaching roundabouts where most routes join. Generally, you will see two directional signs, the first (green background) points to more distant destinations and the second (white background) points to local destinations. Motorways are just like highways and are marked with blue signs. “A” routes are major routes that do not qualify as motorways. “A” routes are marked with green signs.

RAF Croughton is about 1 hour and 15 minutes from RAF Molesworth. It is located 115km northwest of London and 32km north of Oxford.
