UK Needs A Historic Drive Like Route 66

In USA they have a historic route from Chicago to San Monica in California called Historic Route 66. I have however found something that could be turned into a historic drive here in the UK. Historic Great North Road starting at London and finishing in Edinburgh. The route would take in the following major places.

Beginning on A1000 going through Hatfield, Stevenage, Stanford, Grantham, Newark, Retford, Doncaster, Ferrybridge, Weatherby, Boroughbridge, Catterick, Darlington, Durham, Chester Le Street, Gateshead, Newcastle, Morpeth, Alnwick, Berwick Upton Tweed, Dunbar then ending on A199.

I did cover a section for YouTube from A64 near Tadcaster to Darlington but dare not show my own videos without permission. I can show you this video of a man who actually did it from London to Newcastle. He filmed historic spots along the route in his replica of a classic car. Would you drive it?
