B4541 Whipsnade - Dunstable
Dunstable Downs

The B4541 is a short road, but one well worth driving on a clear day. It begins on a roundabout built in the 2010s just east of Whipsnade, home to the quasi-famous Whipsnade Zoo, and heads north up the hill in between trees. If you know the road, it makes for fun, fast driving, but I would advise keeping to 40 if you are new along this stretch, as it features a close-forested edge and uneven cambers.

The road tops out to meet beautiful views across Aylesbury Vale, truly stunning on a crisp clear day, and the reason why many flock to the Dunstable Downs for a summer's day out. The road continues along the brow of the downs, along a straight road. It's tempting to speed here, but 60 really should be a maximum - you don't want to go down the hill!

After passing the Dunstable Downs Golf Club and traversing a blind hill, the B4541 then begins its descent into Dunstable down a steep hill. The edge of town is marked by a 30 zone and you very shortly reach a roundabout with the B489, which marks the end of the road. Left is towards Totternhoe and Tring, right Dunstable Town centre.
